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.
