Even the earliest weapon developers faced the need to understand how and why guns and ammunition work in order to improve their effectiveness. As weapons became more sophisticated, the field of ballistics naturally divided into three main areas of specialization: interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. Providing unique coverage of all three ar

JFK. Analysis of a Shooting, is an expert, detailed and comprehensive analysis of the assassination of President Kennedy. The work takes into account all the elemental factors that lead to a complete understanding of the shooting, and which will eventually serve to establish the undisclosed facts behind the tragic event. In its process of discovery the writing scrutinizes each shot taken at the motorcade. Additionally, it considers the caliber of the rifle used in the shooting. It takes into account the relative speed (in feet per second), and the inherent power of the bullets fired at the President. It analyzes the position of the alleged gunman and its relationship to his target. It also explorers the extent of every bullet wound, as it relates to the shot that caused it. In addition, the work probes the Zapruder film, as a visual record of the event, to denote the crucial frames that expose previously unrevealed facts of the shooting. And finally, the work reviews the trajectory of every single shot taken at the motorcade, from point of impact back towards the suspected point of origin, and their angles of entry into their targets. The book denotes, through conclusive interpretation of the evidence gathered, logical reasoning, and concrete ballistic principles that a total of five shots were fired at President Kennedy. Additionally, it also explains why it can be concluded that none of the shots fired at the President actually originated from the Texas School Book Depository Building, Oswald's alleged sniper position. Orlando Martin joined active-duty military service in the U.S. Navy in December of 1976. After completing basic training in San Diego, California, his first duty assignment in 1977 was overseas in the Philippines. He returned stateside in 1980, and continued his military career. Among his most memorable assignments during his service was a three -year tenure as a Drill Instructor at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois. One of his recruit companies graduated as Color Company ahead of the other divisional companies. The company achieved higher compiled drill and inspection scores than any other company in its graduating group. He was awarded the Navy / Marine Corp Achievement Medal for his commendable effort. Mr. Martin qualified as a rifle expert during his military service, and was consequently awarded the Expert Rifle Medal. He retired honorably from active duty in 1996, after twenty years of continuous service. He is an active member of the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA), and the National Rifle Association (NRA).

A shooting has occurred. Investigators have not yet found evidence. Then they look in a surface water drain and find bullet casings. They put the casings in a paper bag and send them to the lab to be analyzed. Find out about the techniques and tools ballistics experts use to help bring even the toughest cases to a close.

"Elements of Exterior Ballistics: Long Range Shooting" is a concise but comprehensive instructive book on exterior ballistics applied into long-range shooting with small arms. The foundations of the book are innovatively related to the exterior ballistics of point-mass projectile as well as to the new findings and contemporary ballistics methods presented in my preceding books. The book is designed for exterior ballistics professionals, amateurs, and competitive shooters interested in long-range shooting and, in general, in exterior ballistics. Though the exterior ballistics applications are related to long-range shootings with small arms, the reader can easily extend the ballistics techniques to the artillery fire. The book has a large number of illustration examples to demonstrate the exterior ballistics solving techniques and to help the readers understand the ballistics concepts and principles as well as the challenging theoretical and practical applications.

When a crime is committed with a firearm or an explosive, the first people the police turn to are often ballistic analysts. By examining angles, bullets, and explosive residue, these scientists analyze the behavior of projectiles, such as bullets. Readers learn both how ballistics research is performed and how law enforcement officials use these findings to solve crimes. The detailed main text is supplemented with engaging fact boxes, unique sidebars, and photographs that give readers an up-close look into the scientific world of ballistic studies.

The science of small arms ballistics is seriously underdeveloped and underappreciated. This unique and different book is a comprehensive study that fills a legitimate need for a work that covers the engineering and theory of small arms ballistics. The author shares his extensive research on working out the science of small arm ballistics mathematically and explains his theories, such as the field-effect and the field-effect over trajectory and time, along with new theories on interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. Each equation describes a mathematical relationship, such as transfer of energy, and has an engineering application to help solve a design problem. Some equations, such as the calculation of bullet length with a given muzzle velocity and rate of twist, represent manipulations of those equations. Some other equations represent a set of mathematical instructions to resolve a technical problem, such as the computation of trajectory or depth of penetration of living tissue in real-time.

Exterior Ballistics with Applications Skydiving, Parachute Fall, Flying Fragments presents a modern approach to introduce the basics of exterior ballistics and its methods from the simple ideal model of projectile motion to the automatic solution of the differential equations of projectile flight using PC programs. The book uses different approaches to solve the differential equations of projectile motion among them the Siacci method and the numerical methods. The results obtained through the integration of differential equations of projectile flight are mostly analytical formulas that describe the projectile trajectory and make the exterior ballistics a comprehensible science. The Differential Equations of Projectile Flight are also integrated numerically using some original PC programs that can be easily modified to be used in similar scenarios or other new ones and give the reader the possibility to solve a great variety of Exterior Ballistics problem. Exterior Ballistics with Applications can be considered as an interdisciplinary applied mathematics and physics manuscript for the vast mathematics and physics models and techniques employed. It is a great source for applications in physics, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, and PC programming as well. The book is illustrated with about 140 solved examples related to different artillery and infantry firearms that demonstrate the use of formulas and the solution methods of ballistics to find the elements of projectile trajectories. Exterior Ballistics with Applications includes as well two interesting topics that can be considered as applications of exterior ballistics: 1. Skydiving and parachute falling related with the trajectory of a parachutist launched from a horizontally flying airplane with un-deployed parachute, in different meteorological conditions, and in presence of air resistance and wind. 2. The ballistics of projectile fragments that is an important element of Terminal Ballistics necessary to study the effectiveness of fragmentation ammunitions on the personnel and objects, and other problems related with the construction of fragmentation ammunitions, or with Forensic Sciences. Exterior Ballistics with Applications is comprehensive and serves as reference material to provide answers to problems encountered in the practice of motion of unguided projectiles, skydiving and flying fragments of antipersonnel ammunitions.
