Rear Looking BLU-FUZE

The Rear Looking BLU (Ballistics Logging Unit)-Fuze Telemetry  family of flight instrumentation provides an extensive selection of very high shock (60,000G) sensors to measure in-bore and in-flight performance of high velocity EM projectiles. All Rear Looking BLU-Fuze configurations include an integrated 1/4 watt S-Band telemetry transmitter, antenna, and radome which relays the measured data to a ground station.  

All of the Rear Looking BLU-Fuze models include all power and signal processing electronics in a structurally robust housing, a 100msec look back buffer to capture in-bore data, and an external control interface connector for testing and ON/OFF control.
