PUBLIC LAW 102-484—OCT. 23, 1992 106 STAT. 2353 (b) REVISIONS REQUIRED.— The Secretary shall revise the program plan for the Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage Project to include the following: (1) Background information on prior plans, on completed work, and on the specific history of Phases 1 and 2 of the Department of Defense's project. (2) An improved and expanded management plan which establishes a distinct Project Office in the Department of Defense or in the Department of Energy. (3) A project organizational structure which includes two oversight elements, as follows: (A) An executive management steering committee composed of representatives of the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and the Electric Power Research Institute and representatives of any host utility and contributing sponsors. (B) A technical review committee to provide a forum of United States experts to review the program progress and technical results and efforte to investigate the utility of superconducting magnetic energy storage, with a requirement that the reviews be conducted at least quarterly and findings be reported to the Director, Defense Research and Engineering. (4) Deteils of planned technical tasks that include— (A) superconductor experimente that significantly increase the electric current capacity of superconducting magnetic energy storage experiments conducted in previous phases; (B) new system sizing and costing studies of the engineering test model for extrapolation to both smaller and larger systems; (C) materials and construction experimente and studies that lead to totel system cost reduction; and (D) system studies to determine potential applications of superconducting magnetic energy storage, including military, commercial, and scientific utility of the engineering test model. (5) Plans to secure cost sharing for the project. (c) SCHEDULE.— The Secretary shall submit the revised plan to Congress not later than 30 days after the date of the enactment of this Act. (d) FUNDING.— The Secretary shall use imobligated funds appropriated for fiscal year 1992 for research, development, test, and evaluation to conduct the scientific investigations pertaining to this section, including contracting with the Department of Energy for appropriate participation in the studies. (e) REVISION TO FISCAL YEAR 1992 PROVISIONS.— <1) Section 220(b) of Public Law 102-190 (105 Stet. 1320) is amended— (A) by striking out the period at the end of paragraph (1) and inserting in lieu thereof "and by participating private sector firms."; and (B) by striking out paragraph (3). (2) Title IV of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 1992 (Public Law 102-172; 105 Stet. 1166), is amended in the paragraph under the heading "RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST, AND EVALUATION, DEFENSE AGENCIES" by striking out "Provided further, That the Secretary of Defense shall complete the Phase One contrac-
