The HERA (High Energy Railgun Apparatus) railgun at Texas Tech University has been assembled and begun operation. The HERA railgun will be used to study railgun armatures and their effects on railgun velocity. The authors describe the assembly and operation of the railgun. Results are given on the injector, the armatures, and current pulses into a railgun load, and velocity data are presented
