Litton Industries, through its Litton Ship Systems (LSS) group, and American Superconductor Corp. have reached an agreement to collaborate in the utilization of high temperature superconductor (HTS) technology for commercial and naval ships. The initial focus of the collaboration will be on the application of HTS motors for electric ship propulsion. American Superconductor engineers have designed and patented ultra-compact HTS motors that will propel ships more efficiently and quietly, and that will create more usable space on board ships. "We believe that HTS motors provide great potential for ship propulsion," said Dr. Lawrence J. Cavaiola, president of the Litton Ship Systems Full Service Center, which will administer LSS' collaboration with American Superconductor, and vice president of Litton Ship Systems. "We are very excited to be working with American Superconductor - a world leader in HTS technology - to transition this technology to the fleet."
