      In this study, Electromagnetic Launchers have been investigated a matter in hand. Change phases in Electromagnetic launchers have been glanced up to now. General information about basic rules of electromagnetic fields has been given. Pieces constituting Electromagnetic Launchers, various magnetic fields occurring on pieces and forces were analyzed.

      Electromagnetic launchers foundation working principles, types, usages have been explained. Defined of coil launcher, affects of coils forces on the system, methods of improving efficiency, conversion of electromechanical energy and properties of lunched matter (projectile, core) have been mentioned elaborately.

In this study, without using mechanic propeller electromagnetic launcher have been lunched by affect of the coils magnetic field. The matter has been launched horizontally by using designed control device, accelerator coils and power stage that supply these coils for this purpose.


In this study, when one electromagnetic launcher is designed, the cases which have to be taken into consideration have been surveyed; either theoretical or practical ways which have to be followed have been defined. On the other hand, in this work the launcher realized in practice how to work more efficiently is explained too.


Hybrid and coil launchers which are types of the electromagnetic launcher have been realized experimentally.
