The leading innovators in the design and manufacture of Ballistics Measurement Instrumentation formed from the synergy between two well-established companies – MS Instruments Plc and Wiltshire Ballistics Ltd – both with an excellent reputation in their own fields.
The extensive range of over 100 products is proven, rugged, well built and suitable for most internal and external applications. Products are used by a number of private manufacturing companies, Government and Armed Forces worldwide.
Our leading edge software, blended with this instrumentation, delivers flexible and individually tailored customer solutions. This enables testing against multiple product uses and multiple external variables.
The services MS Instruments provides includes;
- Ballistic Instrumentation and Testing
- Live Fire Training
- Range Systems
- Covert Protection Equipment
Ballistic Instrumentation and Testing
The MS Instruments ballistic instrumentation and testing facility in Wiltshire has been undertaking ballistics trials for over 25 years and has their Quality Management System approved to ISO 9001 and UKAS accredited to ISO 17025. Wiltshire Ballistic Services has secure, comfortable and confidential testing facilities operating to full international standards and include various range distances from 10-100 metres, automatic electronic targets, fragmentation testing and stab testing.
Here MS Instruments’ equipment is used to test weapons, ammunition and a wide range of ballistic materials to the highest accuracy. This means analysis is reliable and precise and this is reflected in the reputation of the company.
When testing at Wiltshire Ballistic Services, using equipment MS Instruments can provide, all the variables that can affect results create data that can be analysed. Using apparatus such as a Barrel Straightness Gauge and a Meteorological Station, anomalies can be reduced and any rare occurrences can be explained, meaning testing is as accurate as possible.
MS Instruments not only test for you, but also supply the equipment to create a fully-functioning range from design to installation. We also have the means to hire out our equipment for testing, providing you with maximum flexibility.
MS Instruments manufacture the Flight Follower which, using a computer controlled triggered rotating mirror in front of a high speed video camera, provides the ability to follow a projectile in motion. This enables analysis of the projectile and the weapon from which it was fired. It is a revolutionary design that has enabled companies to evaluate their products more quickly, more accurately and more cost effectively, removing the need for lengthy trials.
Live Fire Training
Ms Instruments provide a range of products that assist in the training of soldiers in the Live-Fire environment. Automatic marking systems, both optical and acoustic, provide instantaneous results back to the soldier or controller, allowing analysis of shots and adjustments to improve performance. The marking systems can be portable with pop-up targets, all made to be robust yet lightweight for a single soldier to be able to carry the equipment.
MS Instruments also provide air-to-ground strafe and Bomb/Rocket scoring systems, which give an accurate indication of strafe, rocket and bomb scores to pilots. This allows live analysis of performance resulting in improvements can be made to method and skill.
All the Live-Fire Training equipment comes with specialised, easy to use software. The software provided allows analysis of all the data. It can also be used to provide print outs or to be stored for later use.
After hearing about the life-threatening scenarios encountered by VIPs in Baghdad when a car, up-armoured to the B6 Standard was penetrated by bullets after being attacked, MS Instruments developed a Non-Lethal Deterrent. The NIMBUS System provides cover and distracts attackers using smoke screens, bright flashes and incredible sound.
From within the car the entire system can be controlled to whatever degree it may be needed. Multiple variations of the pyrotechnics used can be attached to the car for what the user thinks would be most appropriate for a possible situation. The purpose of the NIMBUS System is to distract, disorientate and deprive the attackers enough to allow the victims to either escape without being persued or injured, or to regain the initiative and fight back.
MS Instruments delivers flexible and individual customer solutions and our success has been derived from cost efficiently delivering individual solutions.
We reduce customer product development lead times, cut development costs and help deliver customer product improvements.
