Pulsed supersonic liquid jets injected into an ambient air are empirically studied by using a high pressure ballistic range system. Ballistic range systems which are configured with high-pressure tube, pump tube, launch tube and liquid storage nozzle. Experimental studies are conducted to use with various impact nozzle geometry. Supersonic liquid jets are generated by an impact of high speed of the projectile. High speed liquid jets are injected with M = 3.2 which pressure is 1.19 GPa. Multiple jets which accompany with shock wave and pressure wave in front of the jet were observed. The shock-wave affects significantly atomization process for each spray droplets. As decreasing orifice diameter, the averaged SMD of spray jets had the decreasing tendency.
