    Starting from fundamental physics, Chapter 1 explains the advantages of nuclear energy and explores the performance limits of nuclear propulsion in terms of specific impulse, thrust, power, and mass. Following chapters discuss the tremendous accomplishments of the past and moves into more current by: 8. Nuclear propulsion includes a wide variety of propulsion methods that fulfill the promise of the Atomic Age by using some form of nuclear reaction as their primary power source. The idea of using nuclear material for propulsion dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. In it was hypothesised that radioactive material, radium, might be a suitable fuel for engines to propel cars.

    The project includes both nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) and nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) technology development. This report summarizes the efforts of an interagency panel that evaluated NTP technology in Other panels were also at work in on other aspects of nuclear propulsion, and the sixmore». Mission and Nuclear Electric Propulsion System Options Electric Propulsion Technology Options Thermal to Electrical Energy Conversion. Power Management and Distribution (PMAD) The main conclusion (summarized in a Basic Evaluation Matrix) is that there are many factors to take into consideration, many of which are mission dependent.

      Their final recommendations are due to NASA in July The plan is based on the availability of nuclear-electric propulsion technology under development in . In , NASA began an R&D effort to develop nuclear power and propulsion systems for solar system exploration. This activity, renamed Project Prometheus in , was initiated because of the inherent limitations in photovoltaic and chemical propulsion systems in reaching many solar system objectives.

NEP has been identified as a candidate nuclear propulsion technology for exploration of the Moon and Mars Author: Michael P. Doherty. Summarized are the findings and recommendations of a triagency (NASA/DOE/DOD) panel on Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP) Technology.

NEP has been identified as a candidate nuclear propulsion technology for exploration of the Moon and Mars. Recommendations made by the panel are summarized concerning: (1) existing space nuclear power and propulsion programs, and (2) the proposed multiagency NEP technology.

Findings. Finding 1: Nuclear power and energy have significant roles in space exploration now, and the future for nuclear power has exceptional potential for future space exploration activities. Many missions have been carried out, the very existence of which is owing to the availability of nuclear energy.

Long. Nuclear rocket engines may be divided into two general classes based on the type of reactor used, i.e., solid-core systems and fluid-core systems. The latter may be further subdivided into liquid- gas- and plasma-core by: 1.

This chapter presents the findings and recommendations developed by the committee in response to its two tasks—(1) identification of a series of promising mission concepts to help define space nuclear systems’ potential to enable major scientific advances and (2) discussion of some of the likely technological, programmatic, societal, and budgetary consequences of the potential applications of nuclear power and propulsion systems.

Jump to navigation Jump to search. A nuclear electric rocket (more properly nuclear electric propulsion) is a type of spacecraft propulsion system where thermal energy from a nuclear reactor is converted to electrical energy, which is used to drive an ion thruster or other electrical spacecraft propulsion technology.

Besides the recommendations of previous WP, the propulsion technologies (high power electric propulsion) in line with 30 kWe and kWe NEP applications shall be developed in parallel with EP energy sources.
