TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
TYRC of Tallahassee, Florida will design, fabricate and test a novel magnet for space applications. This lightweight magnet will be designed to operate at higher temperatures reducing the refrigeration requirements for space based magnet applications. When built, the proposed magnet system will enable more efficient, reliable, cost-effective space based operations than alternatives presently available.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Detectors, energy storage, motors, generators, fault current limiters, flywheels

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Detectors, energy storage, motors, generators, fault current limiters, flywheels

NASA's technology taxonomy has been developed by the SBIR-STTR program to disseminate awareness of proposed and awarded R/R&D in the agency. It is a listing of over 100 technologies, sorted into broad categories, of interest to NASA.
