The status of railgun development at T.I.T. is summarized. A Zm railgun combined with two-stage light gas gun has been developed for high pressure research. Further multi-acceleration experiments using two railguns connected in series are in preparation. The purpose of this experiment is to establish the techniques for multi-stage railgun. Computer simulations show that the segmented multi-stage railgun has enough potential for use in the field of Impact Fusion.
