Arnold center cameras go digital

ARNOLD AIR FORCE BASE, Tenn. (AP) -- Cameras at the Arnold Engineering Development Center have gone digital.

The center, after six years of planning, has a new digital camera system at the hypervelocity ballistic range. Spokesmen said it was getting hard to find parts for their film-based camera equipment.

The new cameras capture digital images of projectiles traveling at high speeds.

AEDC is a collection of ground-based aerospace test facilities including wind tunnels and rocket engine test cells.
