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 intelligence 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. The basic requirements for selection to the Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate program for eligible college students and graduates. Program leads to an appointment on active duty as an Ensign in the unrestricted line of the U.S. Navy. Nuclear Propulsion Officers serve their duty on a nuclear-powered submarine or surface ship.

Naval nuclear propulsion program hearing on National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year H.R. and oversight of previously authorized programs before the Procurement and Military Nuclear Systems Subcommittee of the Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundredth Congress, second session, March 3, Operations (OPNAV), Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (N). 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.
