ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 15 -- Logos Technologies, Fairfax, Virginia, has been assigned a patent (No. 10,229,757, initially filed Sept. 12, 2013) developed by two co-inventors for a "modular transportable nuclear generator." The co-inventors are Claudio Filippone, College Park, Maryland, and Francesco Venneri, Los Alamos, New Mexico.
The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=10,229,757.PN.&OS=PN/10,229,757&RS=PN/10,229,757
The abstract states: "The present invention relates generally to electric power and process heat generation using a modular, compact, transportable, hardened nuclear generator rapidly deployable and retrievable, comprising power conversion and electric generation equipment fully integrated within a single pressure vessel housing a nuclear core. The resulting transportable nuclear generator does not require costly site-preparation, and can be transported fully operational. The transportable nuclear generator requires an emergency evacuation area substantially reduced with respect to other nuclear generators as it may be configured for operation with a melt-proof conductive ceramic core which allows decay heat removal even under total loss of coolant scenarios."
