Abstract:
The term “SP-100” is synonymous with a set of technologies that can be utilized to provide long lifetime, reliable, safe space power over the range of kilowatts to megawatts [1] using a nuclear reactor as the heat source. This paper describes recent development progress in a number of technology areas such as fuel, materials, reactivity control mechanisms and sensors. Without exception, excellent technical progress is being accomplished in all areas under development to optimize spacecraft performance characteristics.
