Development of a reversible helical electromagnetic launcher

Abstract

The first-ever reversible helical electromagnetic launcher (HEML) to both accelerate and decelerate a projectile is presented and discussed. The reversible HEML is a hollow-projectile geometry with a barrel length of 750 mm and a bore diameter of 40 mm. Power for the reversible HEML is provided by a 3-module capacitive pulse forming network (PFN) that has a… (More)
