NFS Core Values

INTEGRITY

YOU MAY NEVER DIVE BENEATH THE SEA,
BUT YOU ARE THE FORCE BEHIND IT.

Like the men and women whose ships we power, we, the people of NFS, will face any situation with honesty and in a forthright manner.

COST CONSCIOUSNESS

YOU MAY NEVER MEET YOUR GREAT, GREAT GRANDCHILDREN
BUT THEY'LL HAVE GOOD REASON TO THANK YOU.

As good stewards of the taxpayer's money and our nation's best interests, we, the people of NFS, maintain the strictest standards of excellence and look for new ways to use existing resources for the benefit of all.
One example is the BLEU Project which recycles Cold War material for use in civilian power production.

ACCOUNTABILITY

YOU MAY NEVER STAND ON THE DECK,
BUT YOU ARE THE POWER THAT MOVES IT.

In honor of the men and women who rely on us so that they may defend our country, full and total accountability will be the commitment of every NFS employee.

RESPECT FOR HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT

YOU MAY NEVER FISH THIS RIVER,
BUT THANKS TO YOU, SOMEONE CAN.

As NFS employees, we are committed to the long-term health and safety of fellow employees, the protection of the community and the preservation of the environment through our actions at work and at home.

FORMALITY & DISCIPLINE

YOU MAY NEVER WEAR THE UNIFORM
BUT YOU SHARE THEIR COMMITMENT

By eradicating non-compliant habits and behaviors, we, NFS employees, ensure the safety, efficiency and excellence of everything we do.

TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE

YOU MAY SEE IT AS JUST ANOTHER FUEL,
BUT TO MILLIONS, IT'S POWER, HEAT AND THE PROMISE OF THE FUTURE.

We, the people of NFS, seek to maintain and enhance technical performance and efficiency at all levels. It's this constant determination that makes Advanced Fuel Development projects possible.

PEOPLE

YOU MAY NEVER BRAG ABOUT IT,
BUT YOU'RE AMONG THE BEST.

Through unquestionable integrity, professional competence, personal responsibility and compliance with all procedures, we, the people of NFS, will reach new goals in the fields of science, nuclear propulsion and its applications.
