The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (NNPP) is thoroughly committed to the protection of the environment and the health and safety of personnel.

Each year, the NNPP issues the following reports on the topics of environmental monitoring and radioactive waste disposal, occupational radiation protection, and occupational safety and health. The United States Navy Nuclear Propulsion community consists of Naval Officers and Enlisted members who are specially trained to run and maintain the nuclear reactors that power the submarines and aircraft carriers of the United States Navy.

Operating more than 80 nuclear-powered ships, the United States Navy is currently the largest naval force in the world. The largest experience in operating nuclear power plants has been in nuclear naval propulsion, particularly aircraft carriers and accumulated experience may become the basis of a proposed new generation of compact-sized nuclear power plants mission for nuclear powered submarines is being redefined in terms of signal Naval nuclear propulsion program--1989 book gathering and special Cited by: 6.

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. Nuclear Power School is a technical school operated by the U.S. Navy in Goose Creek, South Carolina to train enlisted sailors, officers, KAPL civilians and Bettis civilians for shipboard nuclear power plant operation and maintenance of surface ships and submarines in the U.S.

nuclear United States Navy currently operates 95 total nuclear power plants including 71 submarines (each with Campus: NNPTC on, Joint Base Charleston. Under the direction of U.S. Navy Captain (later Admiral) Hyman G. Rickover, the design, development and production of nuclear marine propulsion plants started in the United States in the s.

The first prototype naval reactor was constructed and tested at the Naval Reactor Facility at the National Reactor Testing Station in Idaho (now called the Idaho National Laboratory) in Nuclear-trained MMs perform duties in nuclear propulsion plants operating reactor control, propulsion and power generation systems.

This job is perfect for Sailors with deep interest in math, chemistry, physics and engineering—in other words, it takes hard work and smarts to get you into the reactor room. The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program comprises the military and civilian 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. At Naval Nuclear Laboratory, we develop advanced naval nuclear propulsion technology, ensuring the safety and reliability of our Navy's submarine and aircraft carrier Fleets.

We are proud to work closely with the Navy, training the Sailors who operate our reactors. The Navy’s Nuclear Field (NF) program offers extensive training as nuclear propulsion plant operators and technicians to young men and women with aptitude in mathematics and science.

The standards for selection for enlistment in the Navy’s NF program are high. John Michael Richardson (born April 8, ) is a retired four-star admiral in the United States Navy who previously served as the 31st Chief of Naval served as the Director of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program from November 2, to Aug While serving as Director of Naval Nuclear Propulsion (itself a joint Department of Energy and Department of Navy organization.

Those officers or prospective officers considered to have requisite qualifications will be ordered to Washington, DC to be interviewed by OPNAV (N). Submarine selectees for nuclear propulsion training will then be ordered, at the earliest.

No book will ever come closer than this to providing an inside overview of Admiral Hyman G. Rickover's nuclear propulsion program. The author, an Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) historian assigned to the admiral's office, spent years observing the project and its controversial leader in action, and the insights he provides here reflect both his familiarity with the subject and his ability to Reviews: idea of writing the history of the naval nuclear propulsion program.

Hyman G. Rickover (Janu – July 8, ) was an Admiral in the U.S. directed the original development of naval nuclear propulsion and controlled its operations for three decades as director of the U.S. Naval Reactors office. In addition, he oversaw the development of the Shippingport Atomic Power Station, the world's first commercial pressurized water reactor used for.

Naval Reactors (NR) is an umbrella term for the U.S. government office that has comprehensive responsibility for safe and reliable operation of the United States Navy's nuclear propulsion program. A single entity, it has authority and reporting responsibilities within both the United States Department of the Navy (Chief of Naval Operations and the Naval Sea Systems Command, NAVSEA), and the.
