Ballistic Analysis Software BallAX 4

BallAX Ballistic Analyse Software

BallAX 4 is used to acquire and analyse measurement data from firearms, guns, artillery, projectiles and grenades using different ammunition and explosive propellants. Data gathered by the software aids in determining the accuracy and consistency of a projectile before it exits a firearm. Manufacturers of firearms ranging from basic hunting rifles to critical military artillery will benefit from the precision data afforded by this industry-specific software module.


As an add-on to Elsys universal data acquisition software TranAX 4, BallAX 4 easily interfaces with the company's TPCE waveform digitizer data acquisition cards and its turnkey TraNET data acquisition systems.

To make work flow accurate and efficient, complete system settings and data related to a project can be stored and recalled from disk. BallAX 4 easily creates and archives settings for header data, measurement configurations, waveform data and connected hardware such as charge amplifiers.

Key Capabilities


  • Quick and easy configuration of many analog input channels
  • No programming required
  • Sing Shot and Continues Fire Analysis
  • Closed vessel Analysis according to TL 1376-0600
  • Target Visualization
  • Data visualization of complete test series
  • More than 30 scalar functions to calculate specific parameters
  • English and German version
  • Data export to TPC5 and ASCII data format
  • Stand-Alone Application (no further need of TranAX)
  • Report generator, based on freely editable MS-Excel templates


The analysis and visualization of a test series can be done by a simple mouse click, eliminating the need for external development tools to write code. The software can be installed on any Windows-based computer system running Windows 7 or newer.

Typical measurement values acquired by BallAX 4 include up to 16 pressure signals and two temperature signals as well as two velocity signals, each measured with two inductors or light barriers. Values measured by radar can be entered manually.

From these measured values, BallAX 4 can compute, graphically display and generate a protocol with over 30 single value results, including pressure values (Pmax), time analysis (shot ignition delay time, time of Pmax, shot time), velocities, calculation of muzzle velocity as well as Delta-T and Cadence for continuous fire measurements.
