  1. nuclear submarine

    A nuclear submarine is a type of submarine that is powered by a nuclear reactor. The nuclear reactor provides the energy for propulsion, electricity, and other onboard systems, which allows the submarine to operate for long periods of time without needing to surface for fuel or air. Some nuclear submarines can even remain submerged for months at a time. These vessels are primarily used by military forces for surveillance, covert operations, and deterrence roles.

  1. Nuclear submarine

    A nuclear submarine is a submarine powered by a nuclear reactor. The performance advantages of nuclear submarines over "conventional" submarines are considerable: nuclear propulsion, being completely independent of air, frees the submarine from the need to surface frequently, as is necessary for conventional submarines; the large amount of power generated by a nuclear reactor allows nuclear submarines to operate at high speed for long durations; and the long interval between refuellings grants a range limited only by consumables such as food. Current generations of nuclear submarines never need to be refueled throughout their 25-year lifespans. Conversely, the limited power stored in electric batteries means that even the most advanced conventional submarine can only remain submerged for a few days at slow speed, and only a few hours at top speed; recent advances in air-independent propulsion have eroded this disadvantage somewhat. The high cost of nuclear technology means that relatively few states have fielded nuclear submarines. Some of the most serious nuclear and radiation accidents ever to occur have involved Soviet nuclear submarine mishaps.

Examples of nuclear submarine in a Sentence

  1. Robert Driscoll:

    I think that for a woman who's been under surveillance for the better part of two years, it's pretty thin gruel to find a two-year-old... message, and say that that proves she's a spy. Most spies do things. She didn't seek nuclear submarine plans, she didn't try to recruit any agents, she didn't pay anyone any money.
