Abstract : The theory and experimental behavior of an induction electromagnetic accelerator are presented. The induction accelerator, one example of a general class of electrical systems which can be used to accelerate charged particles and ionized gases, employs a timevarying current in a coil to generate the forceproducing electric and magnetic fields. The application of the induction accelerator for space propulsion is of particular interest. (Author)
