Wanted: power-efficient cables to move fast data

Military & Aerospace

U.S. government researchers are asking for industry's help in developing power-efficient cables to transmit fast data from cryogenic-temperature environments to room temperature without overburdening the system's demand for electrical energy. Officials of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency (IARPA) in Washington issued a draft broad agency announcement on Tuesday (IARPA-BAA-18-02) for the SuperCables project.
