The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility of an electromagnetic launcher for aircraft launch at sea. To accomplish this task, the performance requirements and physical constraints for an aircraft launcher were determined. Also, a review of previously used aircraft catapult was completed. In addition to this, an investigation into previously designed electromagnetic launchers was done. A review of electromagnetic launcher theory is also necessary. An investigation of different power systems was done. Finally, experimentation into the practical use of electromagnetic launchers must be done. All of this investigation led to the conclusion that the coilgun type of electromagnetic launchers meets all of the requirements to be used to launch aircraft at sea

Johnson, Andrew Peter (Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005-06);One of the reasons linear motors, a technology nearly a century old, have not been adopted for a large number of linear motion applications is that they have historically had poor efficiencies. This has restricted the ...
