airborne or space applications and capable of operating while in motion.
Note ML20.b. does not apply to direct-current hybrid homopolar generators that have
single-pole normal metal armatures which rotate in a magnetic field produced by
superconducting windings, provided those windings are the only superconducting
components in the generator.
