Navy Electromagnetic Railgun

This Thursday Feb. 23. 2012 photo provided by the US Navy shows A high-speed camera captures the first full-energy shots electromagnetic railgun prototype launcher that was recently installed at a test facility in Dahlgren, Va. The test shots begin a month-long series of full-energy tests to evaluate the first of two industry-built launchers that will help bring the Navy a step closer to producing a next-generation, long-range weapon for surface ships. The new launcher brings advanced material and high-power technologies in a system that now resembles a large-caliber gun. (AP Photo/U.S. Navy, John F. Williams)
