• Electromagnetic Induction Launchers 

    Driga, M. D.; Weldon, W. F.; Woodson, H. H. (IEEE, 1986-11)
    The electromagnetic launcher consists of a system of stator coils producing a traveling field which accelerates an armature carrying currents induced by the traveling field (induction accelerator [1,2]) or persistent ...
  • Micrometeroid Impact Simulations Using a Railgun Electromagnetic Accelerator 

    Upshaw, J. L.; Kajs, J. P. (IEEE, 1991-01)
    A railgun electromagnetic (EM) accelerator was used to conduct a series of hypervelocity micrometeoroid impact simulations. The tests were designed to demonstrate that railguns can provide a repeatable means of accelerating ...
  • Pulsed Power Accelerators at CEM-UT 

    Hayes, R.J.; Fuller, R.L; Kajs, J.P; Laughlin, R.L; Zowarka, R.C. (IEEE, 1991-06)
    An overview of four accelerator programs utilizing pulsed power is presented. The goals of each project, a description of the power supplies and launchers utilized and test results from each program are provided. The four ...
