The Navy has a need to control such extreme power specifications that no suitable switches exist. The Navy power specifications require us to develop a novel medium (probably a pressurized gas or liquid) that can be configured to meet the requirements and control the flow of electrical power directly. Our extensive switching expertise has allowed us to develop a series of novel test fixtures and to perform a series of preliminary experiments to explore a wide variety candidate mediums during the Phase 1 base.
