BAE Systems was awarded a $34.5 million contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) for the development of the Electromagnetic (EM) Railgun under Phase 2 of the Navy’s Innovative Naval Prototype (INP) program. The focus of Phase 2 is to advance the Railgun technology by maturing the launcher and pulsed power from a single shot operation to a multi-shot capability, and incorporating auto-loading and thermal management systems.
In 2012, during Phase 1 of the INP program, engineers successfully fired EM Railgun prototype at tactical energy levels.
Phase 2 is anticipated to begin immediately with initial prototypes to be delivered in 2014.
