General Atomics to Perform Additional Railgun Pulse Power Work

General Atomics (GA) was awarded a contract modification by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command for research, development, fabrication and testing of power supply modules to be used in railgun pulse power containers. Each container houses a number of modules, which provide compact, energy-dense, portable energy used to fire projectiles from the electromagnetic railgun launcher. The Navy has authorized three prototype containers for delivery in 2015. Work will be performed in San Diego (30%) and in GA’s manufacturing facility in Tupelo, Miss. (70%).

This award is a modification to GA’s existing contract with the Office of Naval Research for the design and development of the Electromagnetic Railgun Repetition Rate Pulse Power System.


“This award reflects the continued success in developing pulsed power technology through our partnership with the Navy.  We look forward to continuing that partnership and providing innovative power solutions to the fleet,” says Nick Bucci, GA Vice President, Missile Defense Systems.
