Tests will be conducted in Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), which is located in Dahlgren. Electromagnetic gun shot with an energy of 32 megajoules, manufactured by BAE Systems, has already been delivered for testing at Dahlgren. Note, that it is in the Naval Surface Warfare Center in December 2010 was set a world record of energy of an electromagnetic cannon shot, which was 33 megajoules (1 megajoule is equivalent to the energy of a car with a mass of 1 ton at a speed of 185 kilometers per hour).
