Abstract:

The specific objectives of this program are the following Conduct a limited but broad application survey of multiple applications in which the use of cryogenic and superconductive systems and components offer substantial advantages through improvements in the performance of propulsion, communication, detection or weapons systems Define, investigate, and experimentally evaluate the key elements of a representative cryogenic turborefrigerator subsystem suitable for providing reliable long-lived cryogenic refrigeration for a superconductive ship propulsion system and, Provide a sound technical basis for subsequent applications of superconductive power in the area of ship propulsion.
