This paper presents brief preliminary results of a research program sponsored by the Air Force Weapons Laboratory (AFWL) to investigate the interaction of 30-mm cannon projectiles with reinforced concrete and steel targets. The tests were conducted on test ranges of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMIT) at Socorro, New Mexico under the direction of the New Mexico Engineering Research Institute (NMERI).
