On 30th of January 2019, the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM, a subsidiary of the National Research Senter ‘Zhukovsky Institute’) together with SuperOx held the first successful test of a high temperature superconducting electric engine with a power output of 500 kW.
The electric engine was developed by SuperOx with the support of the Advanced Research Foundation.
To conduct testing, the necessary equipment had been manufactured and the bench had been refined in accordance with the electric engine’s technical features.
The results will be used to develop a further test programme.
Testing will continue in 2019.
