In this SBIR, Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) will investigate and develop a set of novel technologies to minimize the amount of hydrogen needed for reactor decay heat removal after the shutdown of Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) systems. Decay heat is the energy deposited during the decay of radioactive fission products after the reactor shuts down. Its management is a critical issue for NTP systems. USNC’s technology will be an effective, yet simple, solution to address decay heat removal. Central to USNC’s optimized strategy for decay heat removal is maximizing the temperature that hydrogen is ejected and maximizing radiative heat transfer from the available surfaces of the rocket and nozzle. Furthermore, USNC’s comprehensive solution generates small amounts of electrical power with the removed decay heat, increasing mission flexibility and resilience. Specifically, USNC will primarily investigate four technologies to minimize hydrogen usage: - The inclusio...
