Abstract
THE PULSER (PULSED LIQUID SODIUM ELECTROMAGNETIC GENERATOR) IS A DEVICE FOR DIRECTLY POWERING RAILGUN KEW WEAPON LAUNCHERS. IT REPLACES CUSTOMARY PULSE-FORMING ELEMENTS FOR RAILGUN PULSE-ELECTRICAL POWER. PULSER POTENTIALLY SAVES SYSTEM WEIGHT AND COMPLEXITY AND ALSO CAN IMPROVE EFFICIENCY BY EXTRACTING RESIDUAL MAGNETIC FIELD ENERGY FROM THE GUN TUBE(S); TRANSFERING IT BACK TO PRIME POWER STORAGE. PHASE I EFFORT WILL ANALYTICALLY VERIFY THIS CONCEPT, DO SYSTEM PRELIMINARY DESIGNS, AND ASSES SDI APPLICATION MERITS.
