I am trying to measure the velocity of small pieces of foam (diameter =
5 inch) at velocities ranging from 100 - 200 miles/hour. I would like an
'off the shelf' package. Any ideas? Since the foam is so light it looses
most of the velocity 4 inches from the gun. For this reason if the
package has 2 sensors (like the standard military ballistic type) they
need to be about 1 inch apart.

Thank you.
