STI has pioneered the development of advanced proprietary HTS and manufacturing processes for over 20 years, and is the world’s only commercialized, high-throughput HTS thin film materials developer for RF applications. STI has deployed over 6,000 HTS filter systems operating today in public wireless networks, thereby proving the commercial and economic viability of HTS technology. Now, STI is applying its unique deposition techniques and manufacturing experience to the development of cost effective, high performance 2G HTS wire for applications ranging from AC Power Cables to Superconducting Fault Current Limiters (SFCL) and HTS Wind Turbine Generators.


STI’s world class expertise in Stirling cryogenic coolers and thermal packaging along with the ability to reduce production costs on a continuous basis marks the company as a premiere and industry leading cryogenics developer and manufacturer. As an example, STI has built and deployed over 6,000 Sapphire coolers operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the field since 1999 for public wireless networks. Sapphire is an integrated Free Piston Stirling Cycle Cryocooler with a cooling capacity of 5 Watts at 77 Kelvin with less than 100 Watts input power. It has a field-proven Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of well over 1 million hours, requires zero maintenance and has logged over 250 million cumulative runtime hours. The Sapphire cooler is built on a scalable technology platform, enabling STI to develop coolers of varying sizes and performances that meet each new market demand.
