The paper presents a technical feasibility study of a nuclear reactor for electric power generation for space missions. Following a preliminary design, carried-out in the 90's, for a space nuclear system based on a thermo-ionic conversion device, a technical study has been undertaken at the DINCE for another system able to generate electric power for both research and commercial applications. The MAUS-1,5 is based on a fast neutron spectrum, static socium 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. Following a preliminary design, carried-out in the 90's, for a space nuclear system based on a thermo-ionic conversion device, a technical study has been undertaken at the DINCE for another system able to generate electric power for both research and commercial applications. The MAUS-1,5 is based on a fast neutron spectrum, static socium cooled reactor as heat source and AMTEC thermoelectric cells for electric power conversion.
