The Aegis Combat System is an American integrated naval weapons system developed by the Missile and Surface Radar Division of RCA, and now produced by Lockheed uses powerful computer and radar technology to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets.

Initially used by the United States Navy, Aegis is now used also by the Japan Maritime Self. Nuclear marine propulsion is propulsion of a ship or submarine with heat provided by a nuclear power plant.

The power plant heats water to produce steam for a turbine used to turn the ship's propeller through a gearbox or through an electric generator and motor. As ofit is the only nuclear-powered merchant ship in service. [citation.

Some other countries have expressed interest in, or conducted research and development work on, nuclear-powered military Size: KB. CGN AEGIS Modified Virginia. It was the Secretary of Defense's assessment that "the military value of an all nuclear-powered Aegis ship program does. NS Savannah was the first nuclear-powered merchant ship.

She was built in the late s at a cost of $ million (including a $ million nuclear reactor and fuel core) and launched on J She was funded by United States government agencies. Savannah was a demonstration project for the potential use of nuclear energy.

The ship was named after SS Savannah, the Cost: $46, ($18, for the ship, and $28, for the nuclear plant and fuel). Originally designed as Project - a new nuclear powered full -deck aircraft carrier - construction was suspended in when 50% completed and put aside for 5 years when when it was decided the hull was too small to launch aircraft.

AEGIS Program History. For more than 40 years, the US Navy has developed systems and tactics to protect itself from air attacks. Since the end.

Summary: more widespread use of nuclear power by Navy ships leads to or (more likely) must be led by a major change in deployment practice. The Navy has a new idea called basing at sea.

This means ships spend almost all their time at sea and ver. Most new large U.S. Navy amphibious assault ships would be required to be nuclear powered under the National Defense Authorization Act for which the House of Representatives has passed by a Author: Karl Grossman.

The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program includes the civilian and military personnel who design, build, operate, maintain, and manage the nuclear-powered ships and the many facilities that support the U.S. nuclear-powered naval Fleet.

The Program has cradle-to-grave responsibility for all naval nuclear propulsion matters. Proved the technical feasibility and safety of a nuclear powered merchant ship.

Won acceptance at home and in most foreign ports. Demonstrated the capability of a nuclear powered ship to maintain schedules.

Navy’s warships are nuclear-powered. As a matter of public record, the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered ships have collectively steamed over million miles and accumulated over 6, reactor-years of operating experience without a reactor accident or adverse impact on the public or the environment.

Nuclear Propulsion. A nuclear-powered ship is constructed with the nuclear power plant inside a section of the ship cded the reactor compartment. The components of the nuclear power plant include a high-strength steel reactor vessel, heat exchanger(s) (steam generator), and associated piping, pumps, and valves.

of Nuclear Ship Operation. Opening the symposium, H. de Laboulaye, IAEA's DeputyDirectorGeneralin charge of Technical Oper­ ations, pointed out that the first civilian nuclear ship - the Soviet icebreaker "Lenin" - was already on active duty, thefirst nuclear merchant ship - the "Savannah" of the USA - had been launched a few months ago and.

The Cost-Effectiveness of Nuclear Power for Navy Surface Ships Summary and Introduction The U.S. Navy plans to build a number of new surface ships in the coming decades, according to its most recent year shipbuilding plan.1 All of the Navy’s aircraft car-riers (and submarines) are powered by nuclear reactors; itsFile Size: 1MB.

In deciding in the late s on the design for the new cruiser that would carry the Aegis defense system, two nuclear-powered Aegis-equipped options — a 17,ton nuclear- powered strike cruiser (CSGN) and a 12,ton derivative of the CGN class design — were rejected in favor of the option of placing the Aegis system onto the smaller.

The ship was launched on 21 July at a cost of $ million, which included a $ million nuclear reactor and fuel core.
