Abstract : This is the final report of a study to determine the feasibility of using high temperature superconductors (HTS) for providing low-loss transmission lines to remotely feed a phased array radar antenna, mounted above the deck of a ship, from the transmit/receive modules which would be located below deck. A previous similar study involving low-temperature superconducting (LTS) transmission lines was completed a year ago. That final report is included here as Appendix 2 in order to facilitate the overall evaluation of this idea.
