Nuclear Reactor and Balance of Plant Design and Development


We specialize in Liquid Metal-cooled reactors, conventional and advanced water-cooled reactors, reactors for space, reactors for lunar deployment, small modular reactors; innovative, air cooled reactors, transportable reactors, and heat-pipe reactors; plus the materials, metals, reactivity calculations, and software modeling that accompany these conceptual designs. We are experts in Probabilistic Risk Assessment, safety, and licensing in the US and in other countries.
