iX Cameras Videos Bloodhound – The World’s Fastest Camera Capturing the World’s Fastest Car …

iX Cameras is delighted to announce its participation in the Bloodhound project – the UK’s latest attempt to break the land speed record.

The UK-based iX Cameras engineering team is a proud product sponsor - supplying high-speed video cameras which provide the Bloodhound engineers with valuable data that would otherwise remain unseen (not to mention some beautiful video too) - with a view to inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians.

The i-SPEED cameras are being extensively used by Daniel Jubb of the Falcon Project rocket team - from calculating the ignition time of the propellant, to analyzing the shape of the rocket plume and shock diamonds that form in it, to identifying debris and un-burnt propellant ejected as part of the exhaust plume. Using as many as eight i-SPEED cameras at a time, all synchronized together within 50-nanosecond accuracy, videos can be captured from multiple angles to ensure the whole event is captured and also to generate a 3D image.

iX Cameras looks forward to capturing the actual car in action in South Africa during 2015 in some amazing super slow-motion – utilizing the new i-SPEED 7 series – the world’s fastest high-speed camera, videoing the world’s fastest car!

The results generated from the i-SPEED cameras will ensure that the rocket will burn with maximum efficiency, generating maximum thrust and taking Bloodhound SSC and Andy Green beyond 1000 mph.
