AMSC (American Superconductor Corporation) has entered into a delivery contract for approximately $8 million with Textron Systems for a pre-production High-Temperature Superconductor (HTS) Magnetic Influence Mine Countermeasure Payload System.
As navies aggressively electrify their fleets, defense contractor Leonardo DRS is supplying a growing roster of permanent-magnet systems for both hybrid-electric and full-electric propulsion. In recent programs, the systems are coming aboard both new underwater […]
High-temperature superconductor degaussing systems from American Superconductor (AMSC) are increasingly finding their way aboard a new class of U.S. Navy ships, designed to cloak their magnetic signatures from enemy vessels and underwater mines. […]
General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems has been awarded a contract by US Naval Air Systems Command to continue development and evaluation of tailored configurations of the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System and Advanced Arresting Gear as a potential foreign military sale to the French Navy for their next generation aircraft carrier, Porte-Avions Nouvelle Génération. […]
Created nearly 30 years ago but continually refined with new models and iterations, ABB’s Azipod propulsion systems have recently been ordered to power two entirely different types of innovative vessels. One is a technically advanced jack-up vessel for installing offshore wind farms, the other for Ritz-Carlton’s new line of luxury mega-yachts. […]
The latest in-line shaft generator from ABB enables ship operators to benefit from the efficiency, performance and reliability advantages of permanent magnet technology. The new generator brings flexibility and ease of installation to a wide […]
