Rocket Sled Impact Test In Slow-Motion

To ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the United States Nuclear Weapon Stockpile, Sandia National Laboratories conducts extensive modeling and full scale testing. This video shows one of the many tests Sandia conducts, using an inert unit, to ensure our Nation’s nuclear weapons are safe, secure, and reliable. Watch the test events as they unfold through high speed photography in slow motion and discover how sensors, gauges, and quantitative high speed imaging systems provide data for the super computer models.
