Abstract
RAILGUN ARMATURES ARE LOSSY AND CAN PRODUCE SEVERE BARREL DAMAGE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP THE DESIGN TOOLS AND DATA REQUIRED TO PERMIT THE USE OF TRANSITIONING CONTACTS IN ARMATURES. THIS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY AND BARREL LIFE OF RAILGUNS BY COMBINING THE LOW LOSS, LOW SPEED CHARACTERISTICS OF METAL ARMATURES WITH THE LOW DAMAGE, HIGH SPEED CHARACTERISTICS OF PLASMA ARMATURES. THE PROGRAM WILL BUILD ON EXISTING CONTACT THEORY AND WILL BE DIRECTED TO VALIDATION OF CONTACT TRANSITION CRITERIA.
