Abstract:

The performance characteristic of the parallelrail, the repulsion coil, and the induction motor electromagnetic projectors were stdied to determine the feasibility of the electromagnetic projector as an aerospace vehicle weapon and a hypervelocity laboratory instrument. The investigation consisted of a survey of previous investigations, a study of the basic elecromechanical relationships, the determination of utimate projector capabilties, and a brief study of supplemental applications. It was concluded that the only projector that has any promise for aerospace weapon application is the induction motor type. Author
