• Electromagnetic Launchers for Space Applications 

      Schroeder, J. M.; Gully, J. H.; Driga, M. D. (IEEE, 1989-01)
      An electromagnetic launcher (EML) was designed for NASA-Langley to boost large models to hypervelocity for flight evaluation. Two different concepts were developed using railgun and coilgun principles. A coilgun was designed ...
    • A Taxonomy of Electromagnetic Launchers 

      Weldon, W. F.; (IEEE, 1989-01)
      During a September 1987 Workshop on non-railgun accelerators, a consensus was reached on a taxonomy for electromagnetic launchers (EMLs). A refined version of that taxonomy, which is based on functional requirements, is ...
