SNAP 7D: stronium-90 fueled thermoelectric generator power source, thirty-watt U.S. Navy Floating Weather Station, final report

Description: The objectives of the SNAP-7D program were to design, manufacture, test and deliver a thirty-watt electric generating system for a modified U.S. Navy NOMAD-class weather buoy to be stationed in the Gulf of Mexico. The sixty-watt Strontium-90 thermoelectric generator, the relay panel, the batteries, and the installation of the system in a boat-type buoy are described. In addition to delivering the power supply, many tests were required for the SNAP-7D system to demonstrate its conformance to the contract statement of work.
