Thanks for posting that! Seems like they made some progress this year, but still a long way to go. At least looks like their current path forward has funding, which is always a good thing. Hope it works out for them, though 200 to 1000 tonnes is not exactly "compact" anymore.

Hmm,
Just saw a request for a quote for a vacuum tank with six port holes made out out of stainless steel with some very high specs that looks like a enlarged LM machine, about 7 meter long and 1.5 meters wide. From a friend of mine in manufacture for the Gov. I am going to ask him to send the link
The thing that caught my eye
primarily of all-metal construction and operate at pressures from 10/sup -5/ to 10/sup -11/ Torr. The primary gas loads during operation result from thermal desorption and beam-induced desorption from the vacuum chamber walls. These desorption rates can be extremely high in the case of hydrocarbons and other contaminants. These specifications place a major emphasis on eliminating contamination sources.
