Atlas Energy Systems, LLC is developing a patent-pending technology capable of directly converting energy from radioactive waste into electricity. The company's focus is to develop safe, cheap, and efficient radioisotope batteries and portable nuclear power supplies for space, oceanic, and remote terrestrial applications. Traditional nuclear battery technologies are only capable of utilizing expensive man-made radioisotopes as their power source. Atlas Energy Systems is tailoring its technology to specifically work with radioisotopes from spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste. The has two main effects; it repurposes an otherwise unused and potential hazardous waste stream and drastically lowers the cost of nuclear power supplies, allowing for many more applications. The initial target market for these power supplies is underwater unmanned vehicles for military and commercial use. The nuclear batteries could power ocean monitoring sensors and exploration machines anywhere from a f...
