The U.S. Navy has reached a milestone in testing a new type of ship propulsion motor based around high-temperature superconducting magnets. 36.5 megawatts… I think that might be just a bit more than I need. Only weights 75 tons or so, though!
- Most Powerful Motor Ever Tested by U.S. Navy
- Motor Size and Weight Reduced by More Than 50%, Acoustic Signature Reduced, Efficiency Increased
- Superconductor Motors Ready for Deployment
