Precision Engineered Impact Cannons for Hurricane and Tornado Testing

Our automated computer controlled missile impact cannon is designed for safety, accuracy and ease of use. This unit can be raised to impact multiple locations with a conventional forklift. Since each missile has unique firing parameters, a database of missiles is created and recalled. This significantly reduces “practice” shots. Every shot is logged to a data file for verification and reporting. After impact, cycling is easily and quickly performed with our Hurricane Cycling test equipment.
