Here is an old but still working video of the initial research being conducted by Britain on electromagnetic catapults. It never progressed beyond the subscale demonstrator seen here. It's too bad someone can't find any video of the Westinghouse "Electropult" the US tried to develop back in the 50's. They had the electrical know how but no computerized controls.

Moderator Note:

This thread will be about development and innovation of aircraft carriers, from the beginning of carriers up to 1959.

Post historical articles and info here, with photos and videos if available, and discuss carrier development here.
