Abstract
The paper gives a short survey of the historical development of the EMI and the Terminal Ballistics and Impact Physics Division. In the main part, it describes three hypervelocities, their instrumentation, the launcher systems, the launch techniques for a large variety of projectile geometries, and the launcher performance. The paper reports about the subjects investigated in the areas of military application, meteorite impact simulation, basic impact research, and the efforts to improve the performance of the light-gas guns and the measurement techniques.
