THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1981 BLYTHEVIL1,E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE Air Force Lets Contract « For Atomic Plane Frame WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. VPl — The Air Force announced yesterday it haj; contracted for the frame of an airplane to 'carry Ihe first air- bcrne atomic engine. Implicit in the terse statement was an indication that research whas progressed to the point where a plane can be built with a range probably limited only by human endurance and speeds that can only be guessed at. Only about two weeks ago the Navy made a similar momentous announcement. It said it had let a contract for the hull of the first nuclear powered submarine- The Air Force contract with the Consolidated Vultee Corporation gives that company primary responsibility for what engineers call an airframe—the shell of a plane without engines or instruments. The Air Force already has a contract with the General Electric Company — announced last February—for development of an atomic engine for aircraft. And the Atomic Energy Commission said in March it had awarded a contract to G.E for "associated propulsion devices." Speculation Is Litlle There was little public speculation in official sources about how soon an .atomic-powered plane might be perfected. The best guess was that it- would be Eomewhat longer than the tw.o to x three years which officials have estimated may be required to complete a nuclear powered .submarine. Power plants for both have their heart in an atomic reactor — massive device which permits the slow, controlled release of atomic energy in the form of heat and radiation. This heat probably would be converted into propulsive power for a plane by gas or mercury vapor turbines. Some turbine engines also use the super-heated gas as a jet after it has passed through the turbine, to give the engine additional forward thrust. Heat Is Tremendous The heat produced by a small quantity of uranium-235 is tremendous. Scientists have estimated that a pound of uranium-235 would provide the same energy as 6,000,000 gallons of gasoline. But this great heat and iU ac- ccmpanying radiation provide what is believed to be the biggest obstacle to an atomic-powered airplane, The big problem is to provide adequate shielding from the. deadly radiation for crew members. Lead is the best know shield against radiation, and i plane weighted down with too much lead would saarifice the speed and altitude advantages to be gained through atomic power.
