Superconductor Technologies Inc. to Present and Exhibit at the Applied
Superconductivity Conference August 10th to 14th

- Over 1700 Participants Focused on Superconductivity Industry and Technology

             - World Leading Companies to Showcase New Products -

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superconductor Technologies
Inc. (Nasdaq:SCON) ("STI"), a world leader in the development and production
of high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated
technologies, will showcase its Conductus^® wire at the Applied
Superconductivity Conference (ASC) being held August 10^th-15^th in Charlotte,
NC. STI will exhibit at booth 44 and Dr. Jeong Huh will deliver a technology
and product development milestone update presentation titled "Low-Cost 2G HTS
Coated Conductors Scale-Up at STI" on August 11^th at 11:45 a.m. EDT.

"ASC is an outstanding venue to continue our collaboration with new and
existing customers as they look to enhance their product performance utilizing
Conductus wire," said Adam Shelton, STI's VP of Marketing and Product Line
Management. "Superconductivity is a phenomenon where some materials exhibit no
electrical resistance below certain cryogenic temperatures. For this reason,
superconducting wire can carry more than one hundred times the current of an
equivalent size of copper wire; no other technology comes close to this
performance. As such, it will play a crucial role in the electric power
industry's 'Race to Energy Efficiency,' which is the theme of ACS 2014. We
look forward to meeting with company and academic leaders from around the
world as the industry works to commercialize superconducting devices for many
new exciting products."

ASC is a major international forum with over 1700 participants that meet to
present and discuss the latest in the field of superconductivity. The meeting
will attract a broad spectrum of participants in research, technology
development, and industrial manufacturing of superconductors wire and devices
along with end users for a wide variety of applications. Participants from
U.S. and international universities, industry, national laboratories, and
other government agencies will address recent progress in applications. For
