I am writing a techno thriller novel about an attack on the US by terrorists who use an electric rail gun to shoot projectiles a great distance. These 1,000 lb projectiles have a muzzle velocity above 10,000 fps. So my question concerns our ability to detect and track these projectiles. I asked this question on 10/23/05 and was given question ID# 1130071300.Ph. It seems to have been lost and is not in the system
