Futuristic Electronic Guns




With the development of the high efficiency laser diode makes possible a practical Ray gun where a matrix of these diodes can produce a collimated efficient electromagnetic beam of energy. Laser diodes are very efficient than other lasing mechanisms. They are easy to drive, power output per volume and weight is extremely low and they are not that costly. Beam conditioning is accomplished by the use of optical algorithms This page will not go into the laser type futuristic weapon as this is a separate subject requiring more extensive and dedicated coverage.

Futuristic weapons are divided into two categories:

The first being the beam weapon where the energy is transmitted as electromagnetic radiation, particle beams of ions or other SUBATOMIC projectiles.

The second category would be kinetic involving railguns, coil guns and other electromagnetic propelled devices. The theoretical advantage of this type of a futuristic weapon is that the velocity of the projectile is not limited by the burning rate of the chemical propellant. Chemical propellant's are limited to under 5000 m/s whereas a well constructed electric propelled guns can achieve five times that velocity if not more. The problem with this technology is that it requires large bulky power supplies, energy storage systems, power conditioning, triggering systems and of course the weapon itself must be able to handle fantastic amounts of mechanical and electrical stresses

Experiment Examples

Microwave Cannon
Uses gigahertz frequencies generated by a magnetron or higher powered virtual cathode oscillator, gyrotron or other exotic means. The higher the frequency the more beam directional control is possible.

Advanced project shows in detail how to utilize a micro-wave oven to construct a powerful source of directional microwaves. These plans are written with detail given to the mathematical equations necessary to design the horn antenna.

This project can be a tremendous study aid in the field of high power microwaves. Unfortunately it should only be attempted by those familiar with high voltage and high power radio frequency circuits.

All strategic parts are available through us on a special request.

You must make contact to verify age and identity. The experience builder can perform many interesting and bizarre feats with device.

Electromagnetic Cannon/Mass Launcher
The Mass Launcher fires a 4-ounce projectile to a velocity capable of splitting a 1 x 2" pine board on impact.

A lighter projectile can be fired at considerably higher velocity. Device uses stored electrical energy accumulated on a capacitor bank and switched into the accelerator coil (THOMPSON COIL) by a special three terminal triggered spark switch. The accelerator coil induces a very high amperage current in the projectile that now sets up its own magnetic field that opposes that in the coil causing a repulsive moment of accelerative force on the projectile.

The Mass Launcher uses a flat spiral coil arranged with a vertical flyway and wooden support base. The projectile used is on the heavy side weighing in at over 4 ounces. Its geometry is a flat aluminum washer that is of the same size as the coil. This geometry provides maximum coupling and optimizes electric to kinetic efficiency. Initial velocity is over 300 fps but quickly drops off due to the poor aero dynamics of the projectile shape. A piece of 2 foot long 2 x 1 inch pine board placed on the flyway tube will be easily split by projectile impact.

Projectile may be retained on a flyway for repeating display or free flying.

Projectile Firing Module
Requires some machining

The magnetic mortar is an electrokinetic device using a conditioned pulse of magnetic energy to propel an object to a high velocity. This is an excellent advanced science project demonstrating several important electric and magnetic reactions.

This is the module only, requiring a high-energy pulser (not included), and built to withstand the pulse of the higher power HEP100 platform.


The actual mortar module is mounted on an adjustable trunnion-type mount that is secured to the top section with 4 dual springs to absorb the considerable impact.

The Magnetic Mortar uses a coil wound in a conical design to increase surface area and repulsion forces. The coil is wound within a tube that pivots on a trundle assembly to adjust elevation and give the looks of a mortar. The projectile is made with geometry to match the coil and allow maximum inductive coupling. Initial velocity is over 400 fps, and we have gotten ranges of over 1000 feet, even with less than optimal aero dynamics.

This is a very dangerous project and should only be attempted by experienced and responsible adults. Not only is it a severe lethal shock hazard, but also the projectile can maim or kill a person. The device must be treated as a real gun!

Plasma Thermal Gun
Challenging project but rewards are positive ballistic velocities. This project is recommended for the experienced high voltage tech as operation exposes user to dangerous potentials.

The PPRO1 Plasma Thermal Gun utilizes the electrothermal energy obtained from vaporizing a metallic material, creating a pressure wave of sufficient magnitude to cause a projectile to accelerate to ballistic velocities.

The system shown on our data is a relatively low velocity device within the building capability of most hobbyists. The project may be scaled up for serious research with an obvious increase in high voltage handling and ballistic hazards. The project requires experience in the handling of high-voltage, high-energy devices.

Operation requires a high-energy pulser such as our HEP50, which is shown using a 5Kv Capacitor Bank. These values may be altered within limits to allow the use of available capacitors that you may have on hand.

An energy-storage capacitor is charged from a programmable, controlled current source to a selected high voltage. This capacitor is switched by a triggered spark gap, dumping all the stored energy into a small-volume explosion chamber and vaporizing a thin, aluminum wire placed inside the chamber. A pressure wave forces a projectile out of the barrel to a high velocity.

The Plasma Thermal Gun requires a power supply/charger and trigger, such as our HEP50 Pulser/Ignitor or similar (which includes our 5Kv Capacitor Bank to store the ignition energy).

Ion Ray Gun
Excellent action science project, museum demo prop or useful electrical tool. Demonstrate the ability to project an electrical charge to an object. This charge Q=CV will accumulate on the object at the rate V=i(t)/C, Many controlled experiments and demonstrations of electrical properties are possible.

Future Technology!

This series of ion ray and force field gun utilizes a self oscillating circuit with a current controlled transformer. The circuit produces a 10 to 15kv high frequency output voltage and an over current shutdown for safety when used in certain experiments as shown.

The oscillator output is fed to a half wave voltage multiplier consisting of a number of stages that convert and multiply the peak value of the voltage waveform. Output resistors help control the high capacitive discharge currents that could damage the multiplier section.

The circuitry is housed in PVC plastic tubing. A 6" length is attached to the main housing to provide a butt handle like a hand gun. This section houses the 8 "AA" battery cell holder and has a strip of conductive metal tape to make contact to the users hand. This forces the users body to the system ground and provides a virtual ground for charge return. A simple push button switch controls power to the device.

Ion, Charge and Electric Field Detector

Highly Sensitive, Detects Ultralow Background Disturbances

ALL NEW IOD40 detects both positive and negative electric fields produced by ions, ultra low static fields, lightning, paranormal entities and other associated phenomona by using a special low leakage switch.

This very versatile tool detects both positive and negative electric fields produced by ions, and ultra low static fields This unit is sensitive enough to detect the minute charge produced by just rubbing a piece of plastic and bringing the probe in proximity. It easily measures the electric field during a thunder storm or other high static conditions long before the storm arrives.

Extremely useful for mapping the electric fields associated with high voltage generators. Indicates dangerous "E" fields that may damage sensitive electronic circuits or components. Detects those that can be dangerous to personnel. Detects the presence of weak to strong static charges from lightning, potential corona points and output of ion generators, leaking high voltage insulators and wiring insulation. A very valuable device for the high voltage researcher and experimenter.

Unit is built into a handheld 6" x 3" x 1.5" metal box with extendable detection antenna probe. Simple high performance circuitry is powered by a single 9 volt battery that seldom needs replacement.

Detector indicates field strength using an analog meter with a sensitivity control. Includes a potential dangerous high charge field condition by an indicating LED. Switch selects positive or negative charge fields. A response switch allows fast or slow response. A simple external terminal provides a connection point for a grounding lead. Front-mounted RCA phono jack provides a facsimile out for remote monitoring or trigger circuitry for alarms, x/y recorder, etc.

It has been observed that certain paranormal activity is often accompanied by a distortion of the electric field. These changing fields are usually too weak to be detected by conventional detectors. The IOD40 has on several occasions detected unexplained fields in coincidence with other events. At the time of this writing a study is being done at several selected grave sites to see if the distortion in these weak fields can be detected and correlated with other unexplained events.
