Ah, so the British BAE Systems design and make High Technology for the US.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) sponsored Electromagnetic (EM) Railgun Innovative Naval Prototype will deliver hypervelocity projectiles 200 nautical miles (nmi) at a muzzle velocity of Mach 7.5.

In February 2009, we were awarded a $21 million contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop an Innovative Naval Prototype (INP) Railgun. Just under two years later, on December 10, 2010, the U.S. Navy made history at the Naval Surface Warfare Center-Dahlgren Division with our Laboratory Railgun. A 33-Megajoule shot was fired, the energy equivalent of 110 nmi range. In mid-2013,we were awarded an additional $34.5 million contract from ONR for further development of the Railgun under Phase 2 of the Navy’s program. The focus of Phase 2 is to advance the Railgun technology by maturing the launcher and pulsed power from a single shot operation to a multi-shot capability, and incorporating auto-loading and thermal management systems.

Not content with just merely building the launch platform, we are also pursuing the development of a Hyper Velocity Projectile. In late 2013, we received a $33.6 million contract from ONR to develop and demonstrate an HVP - a next-generation, guided projectile capable of completing multiple missions for the Electromagnetic Railgun, as well as existing 5-inch and 155-mm gun systems.

There is one other big advantage of this weapon that they didn't mention, namely that ships will not be carrying a massive store of explosives which is actually a weakness militarily.

Many ships have been sunk by a direct hit on their magazines or a fire reaching them.

Go to google Earth or google maps and type the lat/long
29.9792458 N, 31 8' 3.11" E

This takes you to the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid

299,792,458 m/sec is speed of Light.

This is a coincidence?

I wonder what kind of power source would they use for a little hand held one it seems they use a lot of power for the big one.

A nuclear air burst will fry all the copper wire that make up the induction coils along it's length.
