* Superconducting generators are being evaluated for onboard utility service
* Improved efficiency, smaller and lighter than conventional generators, eliminates and thermal cycling
* Currently finishing risk reduction technology development tasks, and subscale work
* 49,000 horsepower motor was tested for a large U.S. Navy
combatant ship, reduced ship weight by nearly 200 metric tons, and
