An electromagnetic projectile launcher is provided with an insulating cartridge having an internal pressure chamber and an aperture for receiving a projectile assembly. A fuse element within the pressure chamber is electrically connected to a pair of generally parallel conductive launcher rails. Current flow through the fuse element causes it to explode and create a high pressure plasma within the pressure chamber. This high pressure plasma forces the projectile assembly to accelerate away from the cartridge and later serves as a means for conducting cur...
An electromagnetic projectile launcher comprising: a pair of generally conductive rails; a source of current connected to said rails; an insulating cartridge disposed between said rails, said cartridge having a pressure chamber, and an aperture for receiving a projectile wherein said aperture is sized to provide for an interference fit between said cartridge and said projectile; a fuse element within said pressure chamber; means for electrically connecting said fuse element between said rails; means for commutating current at a preselected magnitude from...
