The Task B effort officially began in 1986 with the announcement of the Electromagnetic Gun Weapon System Program (EMGWS). The goal of this subtask was to demonstrate a single shot EM gun suitable for establishing parameters and supporting projectile development. The requirements for this effort (table 1) involved gun performance, firing frequency, constructing a test firing facility, and the ability to bring that facility on line in one years time.
