  • Patent number: 8848046
    Abstract: A round for launching from a gun may include a cartridge case and a projectile body adjacent the cartridge case. A pusher may be disposed in the cartridge case and may be operable to push the projectile body upon firing the round. An imaging sensor may be disposed at least partially in the projectile body. The imaging sensor may include a sensor base and a sensor lens. A first kinetic energy absorber may be disposed around the sensor base. A second kinetic energy absorber may be disposed around the sensor lens. After the round is fired and the pusher exits the gun, the pusher may separate from the projectile body and the second kinetic energy absorber may separate from the imaging sensor.
