Wiltshire Ballistic Services has the capability to test a wide range of materials to national and international standards.
There is a full range of instrumented test facilities including a stab testing room, .15 calibre to 20mm capability, two universal breech firing mechanisms, three sets of velocity measurement systems, a live fire demonstration facility, automatic electronic targets and various jigs and fixtures to handle different types of impact testing.
We have a Photron SA3 high-speed video camera which is capable of up to 120,000 frames a second, a HD camcorder to record trials in real time and a digital camera to take photographs of the trial if required.
We have two ovens and two large freezers, which allows us to pre-condition armoured panels at any temperature from -40°C up to +90°C.
The test equipment we use is to the highest accuracy and used in facilities all over the UK and internationally. WBS not only test equipment but also design and supply an extensive range of universal mounts and guns breeches in all calibres up to 40mm. We also supply EPVAT barrels to carry out pressure testing of ammunition, reloading equipment and the design of ballistic test ranges.
