• Means for high-efficiency direct conversion of fuel to electric power;
  • Higher-speed, more efficient engines that increase power density while reducing fuel consumption; and
  • Higher-efficiency devices at the user end of the power system where the impact of efficiency is greatest (e.g., counterrotating propulsors).
