NRL has a broad portfolio of technologies and over 1300 active patents or patent applications that are available for license. Below is a list of links to more information for a number of NRL technologies that have potential commercial applications.
High Temperature, High Strength, High Voltage Communications Cable
NRL has developed a cable for high voltage electrical and/or optical transmission capable of operating at temperatures up to 1000 °C, hundreds of degrees higher than existing cables. The NRL cable also has superior tensile strength at high temperatures compared to existing cables. These properties are achieved in a relatively small diameter by the use of high temperature components, including NRL’s patented 250-μm diameter fused silica and metal microwire, optical fibers, glass rods, and glass braids.
