Electrical Engineer Sam Barros discusses high-power electromagnetic weapons concepts, including his own experiments into Railguns, Electro-Magnetic Pulse Disrupters (EMP), and a variety of electromagnetic weapons systems. Barros runs the popular EE experimenter’s website ‘PowerLabs.Org’, which showcases high-power electronics experiments, with a focus on the “flash-bang” style high-energy experiments.

Barros has designed and constructed a number of innovative high-power projects, and is considered to be one of the premiere up-and-coming innovators working in this field. While these projects are well-described by conventional physics, Barros comments on mechanical & system-design improvements that got him the attention of the US Naval Research Labs.
