Rickover, Ma The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program provides militarily effective nuclear propulsion plants and ensures their safe, reliable and long-lived operation.

This mission requires the combination of fully trained U.S. Navy men and women with ships that excel in endurance, stealth. Rickover knew that to achieve the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program’s dual objectives of continuity of power and reactor safety, his operators would have to operate in a different way.

He would have to build a different culture, one founded upon what has come to be known within the Navy as the Pillars of the Program. The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program (NNPP) is 1977 book committed to the protection of the environment and the health and safety of personnel.

Each year, the NNPP issues the following reports on the topics of environmental monitoring and radioactive waste disposal, occupational radiation protection, and occupational safety and health.

Inthe advocacy of Admiral H.G. Rickover, then head of the Navy’s nuclear propulsion program, led Congress to stipulate in the fiscal year legislation that all future large surface combatants must have nuclear propulsion. The wording of the legislation was clear: All future cruisers and “super destroyers” must be nuclear.
