ES = extreme spread between velocities, and SD = the standard deviation of said velocity.

Lancet,

ES stands for Extreme Spread (speaking of the velocities)

Example:

2995 fps
3005 fps
2994 fps
3002 fps
3003 fps

The difference between the highest number and the lowest number is 9 fps
so your ES = 9 fps

The SD is a bit more complicated but it stands for "Standard Deviation".

In statistics and probability theory, standard deviation shows how much variation or "dispersion" exists from the average.

So in our example above, the average is 3000 fps, (The sum of all five values divided by 5)

Average = 3000 fps
ES = 9 fps
SD = 5 fps

I hope that helps.
