We present the results of an experimental analysis aimed at investigating the electromagnetic (EM) emission during rail launcher operation. In order to obtain such data, an experimental setup was assembled in a shielded semi-anechoic chamber, consisting of a pulsed power source-unit, a power coaxial cable and a rail launcher prototype. Several experiments were performed for different operating conditions and results were repeatable. Finally, we provide a qualitative modeling of some sources of electromagnetic transients and we discuss basic aspects driving the EM emission phenomena in railgun systems.
