42Title:  Project Prometheus final report Add
 Summary:  This report describes Project Prometheus, the goal of which was "to develop a Deep Space Vehicle (DSV) for outer solar system robotic exploration missions that would combine a safe, reliable, Space Nuclear Reactor with electric propulsion." Naval Reactors was designated by the Department of Energy as the lead agency for the development of civilian space reactor systems and served as a NASA partner in this project. Project Prometheus was cancelled in 2005.

43Title:  Navy nuclear-powered surface ships: Background, issues, and options for Congress Add
 Summary:  This 2010 study, authored by Ronald O'Rourke of the Congressional Research Service, describes issues relating to the expansion of nuclear propulsion to cruisers. O'Rourke notes that the only current United States Navy nuclear-powered surface ships are aircraft carriers. At the same time, section 1012 of the 2008 Defense Authorization Act states that major combantant ships should be nuclear-powered, unless the Secretary of Defense reports to Congress that the use of nuclear propulsion is not in the national interest. The author describes issues relating to the CG(X) cruiser class (which was cancelled in 2010) and provides cost comparisons of nuclear- versus conventionally-powered cruisers.

44Title:  Navy ship propulsion technologies: Options for reducing oil use - Background for Congress Add
 Summary:  This Congressional Research Service study, written by Ronald O'Rourke, describes a range of strategies for reducing the consumption of oil on naval vessels, including the expansion of nuclear propulsion in the surface fleet. O'Rourke analyzes the past use of nuclear propulsion for CGNs, all of which had been decommissioned by the time he wrote this report. The nuclear-powered, guided missile cruiser analysis is relevant to the then-planned CG(X)-class of cruisers. The CG(X) program was cancelled in 2010.

45Title:  NASA/Navy Benchmarking Exchange (NNBE): Naval Reactors safety assurance Add
 Summary:  As noted in the Executive Summary, "the NASA/Navy Benchmarking Exchange (NNBE) was undertaken to identify practices and procedures and to share lessons learned in the Navy's submarine and NASA's human space flight programs" (iv). NASA benchmarked Naval Reactors because of its "high reliability...provid[ing] the most meaningful comparison to NASA's human-rated space flight program" (4). A number of principles developed by the program's first director, Hyman G. Rickover, are analyzed, including the importance of a flat organizational structure that supports informed dissent; responsibility through ownership of a job, longevity, and technical expertise; and, the need for embedding safety principles in all aspects of a program's work.

46Title:  FY 2005 Naval Reactors budget request Add
 Summary:  This budget document describes Naval Reactors funding for the 2005 fiscal year, and for the preceding fiscal years. The program's fundamental purpose is stated: "Provide the Navy with safe, militarily effective nuclear propulsion plants and ensure their continued safe and reliable operation" (521). The budget document describes the development of the CVN 21 (later designated as A1B) reactor, the successor to the A4W plants that power the Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. As noted, the A1B plants will provide over 25% more energy than the A4W plants and require significantly fewer propulsion plant operators. The document also describes Naval Reactors' work with Transformational Technology Core (TTC) pressurized water reactors, which will "deliver a significant energy increase to future VIRGINIA-class" submarines (522). The "Memos and Strategies" section (526) describes the program's relationship to the Bettis and Knolls laboratories.

47Title:  National Nuclear Security Administration: Executive summary, FY 2004 Congressional budget request Add
 Summary:  This budget request describes the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), which was created in 2000 and oversees the Office of Naval Reactors. The document has detailed budget information for Naval Reactors facilities for the 2002 and 2003 fiscal years, and information on requests for FY 2004. The Transformational Technology Core (TTC) Pressurized Water Reactor ("a new design reactor core") is mentioned in the Naval Reactors summary (12).

48Title:  FY 1999 Naval Reactors budget request Add
 Summary:  This is the FY 1999 budget request for the Naval Reactors program. It describes the organization's mission ("'cradle to grave' responsibility for Naval nuclear propulsion work"). It provides detailed information on Naval Reactors operations at that period of time, and describes NR's areas of development to achieve improved power densities and extended core life. The evaluation and servicing section describes NR's requests to support defueling or dismantling the S1C, D1G, A1W, and S5G prototype plants.

49Title:  FY 2002 Naval Reactors budget request Add
 Summary:  This budget document describes Naval Reactors' budget needs as of the first half of 2001. The evaluation and servicing section provides information on the state of the prototype plants (with S8G and MARF in use) and the work to deplete the Advanced Fleet Reactor (the S6W core, installed in the S8G prototype) for core testing purposes. The document provides a good overview of the current and in-development technologies being supported by NR in 2001.

50Title:  Statement of Thomas P. D.Agostino, Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and Administrator, National Nuclear Security Administration, U.S. Department of Energy on the Fiscal Year 2011 President.s budget request before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Subcommittee on Strategic Forces Add
 Summary:  This document describes the Naval Reactors appropriation request for FY 2011. It describes the current composition of the nuclear navy and three future priorities: replacement reactor plants for the S8G plants on board Ohio-class submarines; refueling of the Ohio prototype plant at West Milton, New York; and, funding for the Expended Core Facility at the Idaho National Laboratory.
