UNCLASSIFIED DISTRIBUTION A

AT-Sea Testing Update


The U.S. Navy will fire its first-ever Railgun at
sea on the Eglin Air Force Base Maritime Test
Range in late Summer of 2016 aboard JHSV5,
USNS TRENTON
The test will fire a GPS-Guided Hypervelocity
Projectile from a Railgun at a fixed over-thehorizon target
Further, it will validate system performance
models for a dynamic Railguns
