"An innovative modification to magneto-inertial fusion is proposed in which the pulsed, high current magnetic field coil and stationary central fuel target are replaced with a fast moving fusion fuel target fired axially into a static, high gradient magnetic field."

I wonder what they think the advantage is over the system proposed (and partially developed) by MSNW LLC, which uses a FRC target for an imploding foil liner.
