Come hear about Ultra Safe Nuclear. Ultra Safe is working to provide the energy needs of our complex world. They are headquartered here, in Seattle, and are a global leader in nuclear technologies and services, on Earth and in Space. Learn about Micro Modular Reactors (MMR®), Fully Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM®) nuclear fuel, and nuclear power and propulsion technologies for space exploration. Q&A following talk. 

Our speaker, Wes Deason, nuclear engineer, is the Pylon Program Manager at Ultra Safe Nuclear’s Advanced Technologies Division and has supported Ultra Safe’s efforts on nuclear power for the past 5 years. He has a broad experience base in designing and developing high-temperature reactors for power, industrial heat, and space applications and modeling their application to accelerate the transition to a 100% clean energy system. Wes has a M.S. and B.S. in Nuclear Engineering from Oregon State and Texas A&M University.

Before working at USNC, he worked with the Center for Space Nuclear Research at Idaho National Laboratory supporting Nuclear Thermal Propulsion design on MSFC’s Space Capable Cryogenic Thermal Engine Project, as well as design of several independent space and transportable multimegawatt power reactor design studies.
