Adams Atomic Engines, Inc.
What other ships can particularly benefit from atomic power?

American shipbuilding has been struggling. Will atomic engines help?

Yes. There is no other nation in the world that has our experience in building nuclear propulsion plants. There is no other nation that has the store of trained operators that can help train other operators. By putting our expertise to work, we can build ships with such a technological advantage that they will be able to overcome some of our cost disadvantages.

Nuclear ships will be much faster, more responsive, have greater cargo capacity per ton displacement, and greater reliability. However, we must work in new ways; if we try to build nuclear powered commercial ships like we do extremely expensive carriers and submarines we will not succeed.

a way to go
