 Veloce Projectile acceleration - ITHPP _ compact pulsed power generator to conduct studies on hyper speed impacts

Electromagnetic forces allow the controlled and reproducible acceleration of projectiles. This can be applied for low speeds (a few hundred m/s) but also for very high speeds (above 10km/s). Such a capability opens up the opportunity to conduct studies on hyper speed impacts applied within the following fields:

  • Defence: effects of impacts and physics of explosives
  • Space: impacts of micrometeorites

Such knowledge and know-how is available to customers who have specific needs to which ITHPP can respond by adapting pre-existing technologies and techniques or by creating a complete design, taking into consideration required performance standards, safety and ergonomics of use.
