Pulsed Power

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has a unique background in the development and deployment of high energy density pulsed power and high power capacitors. The scalability and compact form factor of the pulsed power technology enables multi-mission-capable railgun weapon systems for mobile, fixed and shipboard platforms.

GA-EMS pulsed power system has undergone successful testing to ensure operational readiness under extreme environmental conditions. Housed in six foot, ten foot and 20 foot climate controlled containers, each pulsed power system can be configured to support the repetitive rate power required. Energy stored in capacitors is precisely switched and managed over the course of a few milliseconds in order to efficiently fire each railgun system configuration.
