Navy Considers Accelerating Electromagnetic Railgun Development

The U.S. Navy was planning to test an electromagnetic railgun at sea later this year, but officials are considering postponing or skipping the demonstration in order to speed up the project. The test, which is planned to be based out of the Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, would involve using a prototype of the futuristic weapon to hit a floating barge in the ocean.
