Cryogenic and superconducting technologies will likely be present on board future battle ships and aircraft, primarily in motors and generators. Motivated by this prospect, DARPA has sponsored a study to investigate the impact of expanding cryogenics to the power conversion equipment as well. An overview of the results of this study and future prospects are the subject of this paper.
