Headway Made In Superconducting Cable Tech

Florida State University’s Center for Advanced Power Systems has made a recent breakthrough in a research project for the United States Navy. Research teams at CAPS, located in FSU’s Innovation Park, were successful with a project testing high-conductivity electrical cables to generate power for future naval vessels and aircrafts. The project, funded by the Office of Naval Research, found that using helium gas to cool super conductive cables allowed generators to conduct up to three kilo amps of electricity–something never demonstrated before.
