In this article, the most appropriate design method for a field defense system that operates with magnetic field laws by taking audio and video signals as reference is described. The study is important because it eliminates the operator (soldier) factor in the battlefield. Taking into account the effect of capacitor voltage, capacitance value and accelerator winding inductance value, the main criteria for determining the power supply and armature structure of the electromagnetic launcher are proposed. This proposal is made with MATLAB/Simulink software based mathematical model and the differences are explained by comparing with ANSYS Maxwell simulation. The simulated results show that the speed difference between the models is 7%. Additionally, the design methods of the audio and video-based positioning systems that control the system are explained in the study. In this system where signal receiving microphones are positioned in triangular form, a linear algorithm using the time difference method is utilized. By comparing the theoretical mathematical model with the experimental simulation model, the accuracy of the method and the method function is proved. In this study, a deep learning-based target detection system that operates with the YOLO v2 algorithm is used to increase the system's mission execution capacity. The operator is eliminated by switching the system with the signal received from the positioning systems.
