General Atomics Electromagnetics - Railgun Weapon Systems

Railgun Weapon Systems

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) is maturing railgun weapon systems to support air and missile defense, counter battery fire, and precision indirect fire. GA-EMS railgun weapon systems feature electromagnetic launchers that use electricity instead of chemical propellants to fire projectiles at high speeds. The high muzzle velocity can be twice that of conventional guns leading to shorter engagement times, extended keep-out, and longer range.

Multi-mission Railgun Weapon Systems

Precision. Power. Speed.

Multi-mission Railgun Weapon Systems

Multi-mission Railgun Weapon Systems

  • Safe, fault tolerant design
  • Multi-mission capability in a single weapon system
  • High firing rate engages multiple threats simultaneously
  • Elimination of propellant and high explosive warheads simplifies resupply, reduces logistics burden
  • High capacity (deep magazine) and low cost per engagement
  • Flexibility for mobile tactical, shipboard, and fixed land-based applications
