The paper presents a technical feasibility study of a nuclear reactor for electric power generation for space missions. The MAUS-1,5 space reactor system was designed by the Nuclear Engineering and Energy Conversion Department (DINCE) of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and is based on a fast neutron spectrum, static sodium cooled reactor as heat source and AMTEC thermoelectric cells for electric power conversion.

Abstract

The paper presents a technical feasibility study of a nuclear reactor for electric power generation for space missions. The MAUS-1,5 space reactor system was designed by the Nuclear Engineering and Energy Conversion Department (DINCE) of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and is based on a fast neutron spectrum, static sodium cooled reactor as heat source and AMTEC thermoelectric cells for electric power conversion.
