Who do you think writes the regulations the Military Implements? hint, its NOT the Smurfs.

Thats searching the NRC site for Military and Weapons.

Here is another one searching: Military surface flees nuclear reactors.

The NRC has a very large footprint in the military and only an IDIOT would argue otherwise.

Heres another one:
This searches Military Submarine nuclear reactors.

My Husband was an E6 on board the USS Grant SSBN 631 They spent months, 24/7 training to get that boat certified. Who ran the cert process ultimately? The NRC. yeah, look at this PDF: What else did that boat hold? Yeah, Ballistic Missiles.

Just because you get hits when you do a search doesn’t mean that there’s meaningful documents. I tried your searches and they don’t validate your assertion. Sorry.

The NRC does not certify naval reactor operators or submarines. That pdf you cite has to do with the packaging of a discharged reactor compartment so that it can be transported on public highways.

The subject of the pdf you cite is not exactly what I would call a major regulation of naval reactors by the NRC. If you can cite the organization within in the Nuclear Regulatory staff that regulates naval reactors (and I mean design, operation, manufacture, training, etc), then I will readily grant your assertion.

The fact that you refer to submarine reactors doesn’t exactly indicate that you have much knowledge of the subject. I think that you would find that the term used by those with experience in the field is “naval reactors.”

And, you know, I did a search on the NRC website for naval reactors, and, good golly, I got lots of hits! And, guess what, they are mostly dealing with the transportation of components discharged from naval vessels. I don’t see any relating to reactor design, operation, manufacture, etc.
