With progress of the YBCO-coated conductor to longer lengths, application of the conductor is nearing. An overview of a couple of current U.S. Air Force application programs is presented. A discussion is then made of where research and development of the YBCO-coated conductor should progress and examples in the U.S. Air Force program. These areas include magnetic flux pinning in YBCO thin films, reduction of the ac losses experienced in the YBCO conductor, and stability and quench issues when implementing the YBCO-coated conductor.
