impact force measurement

I am interested in measuring impact force of a projectile on a rubberized kick boxing dummy.

(projectile = 3" x 6" cylindrical 'dummy', traveling at 160 feet per sec, 30 feet downrange )

I have am looking into mounting sensors on the target dummy, and/or mounting the sensors directly in the projectile.

I am interested in both accelerometer and Piezo Vibration sensors; in as close to a plug & play configuration as possible.

Best Regards,

Bill Rayner



ps. I’m in Tallahassee, Fl

The target can be a fixed object instead of the rubberized kickboxing dummy, so to remove any calculations needed on foam compression.
