Abstract

Secretary Perry toured the USS Harry Truman with Admiral Caldwell. The Truman is powered by the Department of Energy’s Nuclear Propulsion Program. These ships can run 25 years with a single nuclear-powered reactor. Secretary Perry was briefed on the importance of nuclear propulsion to the carrier’s capabilities. The Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program provides power plants that ensure safety, reliability, and extended deployment capacity.
