Superconductor motors for the DD(X)? Maybe, judging by this report:
The Navy is researching motors for the planned DD(X) destroyer, and the American Superconductor technology could be considered. The first two DD(X) destroyers are expected to launch in 2012 at a projected cost of $3 billion each. American Superconductor is to deliver its first prototype motor by September to a Navy test facility in Philadelphia.Superconductor primer here.
Makes this 4 boiler destroyer guy feel a little older...
More on the DD(X) here. Yes, I know, the whole thing is gee whiz high tech. At $3+ billion a copy, it had better have good coffee makers and be able to sing and dance.
Sort of like an ocean going KITT. KITT was the smarter of the partners.
