51Title:  FY 2003 Naval Reactors budget request Add
 Summary:  This document provides an extremely detailed analysis of the FY 2003 budget request for the Naval Reactors program. The section on operational lifetimes (page 12 of file) notes that the Enterprise and a number of Los Angeles-class submarines are serving for far longer than their designed lifetimes. The request describes the fact that six of the eight land-based prototypes had been shutdown by 2002 and were in the process of being deactivated. It provides reports on the units within Naval Reactors, including mission goals, recently-completed activities, and planned projects.

52Title:  Statement of Admiral Frank L. Bowman, U.S. Navy, Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program to the Senate Armed Services Committee ,Strategic Subcommittee Add
 Summary:  In this statement, Admiral Frank Bowman provides information to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Naval Reactors' FY 2003 budget request. Bowman describes the composition and strategic capabilities of the Navy's nuclear-powered attack submarines, ballistic missile submarines, and aircraft carriers. He notes that the Virginia-class attack submarines, which are powered by the S9G reactor, have the first cores that are designed to last for the entire lifetime of the ship. Bowman describes the steps being taken to extend the life of nuclear-powered vessels, such as refueling the Los Angeles-class attack submarines. Consistent with the joint Navy-Department of Energy scope of NR activities, Bowman also describes the DOE's budget request, including support for reactor development work that extends core life. He lists Virginia-class (S9G reactor) and CVNX (A1B reactor) development, spent fuel processing, and prototype deactivation as significant DOE funding priorities.

54Title:  Department of Energy FY 2009 Congressional budget request: National Nuclear Security Administration Add
 Summary:  This document provides a detailed summary of the Naval Reactors budget request for fiscal year 2009. NR's total budget request for FY 2009 was $828.1 million. The request notes that "the program's number-one priority is ensuring the safety and reliability of the 103 operating naval reactor plants" (549). The request includes development support for the Virginia-class fast attack submarine reactor and the CVN 21-class (or A1B) reactor plant. The request for the "Evaluation and Servicing" section was significantly increased from the previous fiscal year due to maintenance and assessment costs at the Idaho National Laboratory's Expended Core Facility. The request notes the resources that NR draws upon, including the Bettis and Knolls laboratories and the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) at the Idaho National Laboratory.

55Title:  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.

56Title:  Department of Energy FY 2010 Congressional budget request: National Nuclear Security Administration Add
 Summary:  This document describes the fiscal year 2010 budget request for Naval Reactors, as part of the larger National Nuclear Security Administration request. The Naval Reactors request for FY 2010 was just over one billion dollars. The document describes the major achievements of Naval Reactors in FY 2008, including the completion of sea trials for the USS George H.W. Bush, the last Nimitz-class carrier and the completion of 85 percent of the A1B design work for the successor class of nuclear-powered carriers. Additionally, two Virginia-class submarines were commissioned, bringing the total for the class to five. Several strategic areas are identified going forward, including a propulsion plant for the successor to the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarines; the refueling of the S8G (Ohio) prototype plant; and, investing in the program's spent fuel processing infrastructure. Summaries of the work of the divisions within Naval Reactors are included in the budget request.

57Title:  Statement of Admiral Frank L. Bowman, Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, before the Senate Armed Services Committee, National Nuclear Security Administration budget Add
 Summary:  Admiral Frank Bowman's written statement in support of the Naval Reactors request in the fiscal year 2001 budget. The document provides a good description of the role of the Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion and an overview of the program's history and culture. Bowman's emphasis on "the longevity of its senior managers and staff" is consistent with Admiral Hyman Rickover's management of the program (as its first director). In terms of the FY 2001 request, Bowman identifies reactor development for the Virginia-class fast-attack submarines and the successor to the Nimitz-class carriers as priorities. He also describes NR's efforts since 1993 in deactivating land-based prototype plants.

60Title:  FY 2006 Naval Reactors budget request Add
 Summary:  The fiscal year 2006 budget request for Naval Reactors. Beyond the primary goal of plant safety, the request describes NR's strategic efforts "to increase core energy, to achieve life-of-the-ship cores, and to eliminate the need to refuel nuclear powered ships" (557). These development efforts included the reactor plant design for the CVN 21 class (the A1B reactor) and the Transformational Technology Core (TTC) for Virginia-class fast attack submarines. One motive behind TTC described in the request was "the need to transition from 97 to 93 percent enriched Uranium fuel. This transition is necessitated by the shutdown of the high enrichment plant and the decision to use Uranium recovered from retired nuclear weapons as starter material for naval nuclear reactors" (558). The "Reactor Technology and Analysis" section provides more in-depth coverage of NR's TTC work.
