Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A MULTI-RAIL RAILGUN AND A MULTI-ARMATURE LONG ROD PENETRATORS FOR ANTI-ARMOR APPLICATION. PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT RODS OF L/D BETWEEN 20-30 CAN BE LAUNCHED TO VELOCITIES OF 2 TO 4 KM/S, SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THE PRESENT STATE-OF-THE-ART IN ANTI-ARMOR WEAPONRY. KEY TECHNICAL ISSUES ARE INTER-RAIL INSULATION OF THE MULTI-RAIL GUN AND ARMATURE/SABOT INTERFACE WITH EXTREMELY HIGH L/D RODS.
