Infinia Technology Corp.is a technology firm specializing in the design, development and commercialization of cryo-coolers for a wide range of applications. ITC holds several U.S. government contracts including ones from the U.S. Navy. The company’s cryo-coolers outperform commercially available alternatives from both an efficiency and noise perspective and enable 50% more cooling power for AMSC’s SPS. We believe that there are no other cryo-coolers currently on the market with the same efficiency performance as ITC.
