The reactor radiation shield mass is rntrnized Dy Sriec> y :very arrow . core
angle as shown in Figure 1, thus creating a locally protected snadow region, rather than
shielding around the entire reactor. A 12"/6' elliptical shadow cone was based on spaceship
radiator and high gain antenna configurations

Enclosure (1) summarizes the reactor radiation shield design progress based on NRPCT (KA L
and Bettis) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) analyses. It discusses the pre-
conceptual shield configuration considered and the radiation sources, material consideratic--s
and mass estimates. Integration with the reactor, the reactor coolant and energy corr es :
subsystems, and the spaceship, are also discussed A -Tef discussion of future wor-
considerations and mission extensibrlity is include.
PRE-DECISIONAL - For planning and discussion purposes only
Here’s what’s next.
