Evaluation of low assay Pu-238 oxide for use in fabrication of plasma-fired microspheres

Description: The desirability of evaluating low assay plutonium-238 ({approximately}23% Pu-238) oxide was discussed with AEC personnel during a meeting at Germantown on July 6, 1967. In September, 1967 a sample of this material was furnished to Mound for evaluation. This evaluation was to be completed on a schedule which would not interfere with production of material for the SNAP programs, and was to include characterization of the oxide feed, and preparation and subsequent characterization of plasma-fired microspheres according to SNAP-27 procedures. Authorization to perform this work was received from DAO on September 1, 1967.

Research and development allocations and plant assistance support, FY-1969

Description: This document describes the scope of research and development assistance work required to meet the program needs for FY-1969 of Douglas United Nuclear, Inc. in the operation of the C, N and K Reactors. The allocation of research and development funds and estimates of work order support for plant assistance work to Battelle-Northwest are consistent with the research and development funding level in FY-1969 and with the estimates described in DUN-4584, ``Research and Development Allocations and Plant Assistance Support, FY-1969,`` C. D. Harrington to F. W. Albaugh (Confidential). As the programs progress, or if program emphasis changes, it may be necessary to make adjustments in the funds allocated to individual programs within the total level of available funds.
