High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A ram accelerator has the same function as a gun; i.e., it is a device for accelerating projectiles; however, it is entirely different in that jet-engine-like propulsion cycles utilizing ramjet and/or scramjet combustion processes are used to accelerate a projectile to extremely high speeds. It is thought to be possible to achieve non-rocket spacelaunch with this technology. It is a long tube (barrel) filled with a mixture of combustible gasses with a frangible diaphragm at either end to contain the gases. The projectile, which is shaped like a ram jet core, is fired by another means (e.g., a light gas gun) supersonically through the first diaphragm into the end of the tube. It then burns the gases as fuel, accelerating down the tube under jet propulsion. Other physics come into play at higher velocities.
