This paper presents an overview of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) program on high temperature superconductivity (HTS). This multidisciplinary effort has, since 1987, spent about $220,000,000 on promoting the science and technology of these materials. Support of many aspects of R and D has been provided to universities, national laboratories and an emerging industrial base. The current program is focused on several promising applications: (1) the development of RF and microwave passive components and subsystems for radar, EW, wireless communications and medical instrumentation; (2) developing digital applications of cryogenic technology both utilizing superconductors as well as semiconductors; (3) contributing to the development of a conductor for power applications, and (4) developing a variety of low-cost reliable cryocoolers that will be the enabler for many aforementioned applications.<>
