Abstract
APS has assembled a world class team to address problems associated with rail gun launcher operation. APS has combined its unique processing experience with IAT's railgun design, testing and characterization experience to develop materials to improve rail gun performance. Phase I will be devoted to fabrication and testing of various samples in rail gun conditions. Phase II will focus on the manufacture of larger specimens for full scale rail gun testing.
