1Title:  Department of Energy FY 2008 Congressional budget request: National Nuclear Security Administration Add
 Summary:  This budget request provides an update on Naval Reactors activities and information on NR's future goals. The FY 2008 budget request for Naval Reactors was approximately $808 million. One of the described development areas is the reactor for the CVN 21 (the A1B reactor): "The new high-energy reactor design...represents a critical leap in capability" (531). The A1B reactor will have "nearly three times the electric plant generating capability" compared with the Nimitz-class A4W plants, and will require only half the number of plant operators (531). The request also has information on two reactor core development paths: Transformational Technology Core (TTC) and the use of fuel from nuclear weapons programs. A detailed justification is also included, describing the work of divisions within Naval Reactors. Developments to the A1B reactor are prominent across divisions, including reactor instrumentation and control rod drive mechanism design and development.
