IDEA: Creating a nuclear reactor for operation on Earth or space for individual use in small residential structures.
CURRENT STATUS: Key and reactor parameters were calculated.
MARKET: TA - long-distance expeditions, long-distance settlements, the Arctic, space programs.
CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES: Long-distance expeditions and settlements are completely limited by electrical and thermal energy, which leads to not comfortable living and death of people. We offer a compact source of autonomous electrical and thermal energy.
SOLUTION: Production of heat and electric energy in a safe way by a reactor on "weak interactions", which emits soft gamma and X-rays.
COMPETITORS: Kilopower National Laboratory in Los Alamos, Rosatom, China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN).
ADVANTAGES: The ability to turn on and off a nuclear reactor with a special key, as well as adjusting its power. Work material - lead, which is cheaper than uranium in 1000 times.
FINANCE: INVESTED IN THE PROJECT: no
BUSINESS MODEL: Sale of ready portable reactors. Development of individual reactors for special conditions.
TARGET PURPOSE OF INVESTMENTS: Development of the design and development of a sample of the reactor key. Business growth. Marketing.
PROPOSAL TO INVESTOR: $ 500,000
RISKS: Difficulties of certification for sale.
VICTORY IN COMPETITION AND OTHER AWARDS: no PATENT: Design if necessary.
