First thing, first.

To begin with we would need to launch our "super computer" and satellite systems for control of self constructing materials. One of the more practical ways of doing this is the rail-gun systems we discussed earlier on.

The actual science that can accomplish this is a navel design that is already in existence.

Pulsed Power System for Naval
Electromagnetic Launch Development

A team led by General Atomics has started work on developing and testing a proof-of-concept (PoC) pulsed power system for Naval Electromagnetic (EM) Launch Systems. GAs team members are Titan and the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM).

The mission of the PoC Pulsed Power System demonstration is to provide a reliable, full-scale pulsed power platform on which to conduct launcher and projectile testing, pulsed power development testing, ship integration testing, and critical component development testing.

The team will fabricate approximately 8 MJ of capacitors of the design selected for the PoC Pulsed Power System; fabricate, assemble, and factory test the PoC prototype PFN assembly comprised of modules totaling approximately 8 MJ; and develop an EM launcher system model. The model will contain functional elements for major subsystems including the PPS, launcher, and projectile. It will be capable of simulating power flow, launcher electrical performance, and basic flight performance of the projectile. From this, a conceptual design and cost-estimate for the pulsed power system will be generated.
