The Transformational Challenge Reactor (TCR) Program was developed to bring to bear additive manufacturing (AM) and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver enabling technologies for advanced reactors. TCR is now being joined with Advanced Methods for Manufacturing (AMM) and Nuclear Materials Discovery and Qualification Initiative (NMDQi) to address the whole lifecycle of nuclear materials and related technologies.
Design informed by artificial intelligence
Advanced materials derived from additive manufacturing
Integrated sensing and control towards autonomous operation
Digital platform for quality certification of critical components
