$1.3M Contract Extension for AMSC

Thursday, July 13, 2006
American Superconductor Corporation received a $1.3m contract extension for its second generation (2G) high temperature superconductor (HTS) wire from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). The contract was awarded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This most recent extension represents the sixth contract or contract extension American Superconductor has received for 2G HTS wire development over just the last 10 months and brings the total dollar amount of all AMSC government contracts and contract extensions for this purpose to approximately $8.1m in that timeframe. Targeted DOD applications for 2G HTS wire include ship propulsion electric motors and generators, degaussing cable systems, non-lethal weapons and power distribution systems for warships. AMSC is actively involved in developing components or systems for each of these applications.
