Energy Systems and Products
General Atomics pioneers advanced technologies with world-changing potential. We have been at the cutting edge of energy innovation since the dawn of the atomic age – for more than 60 years. GA’s scientists and engineers are advancing the frontier of scientific discovery and delivering safe, sustainable and economical solutions across a comprehensive array of key energy technologies.
Magnetic fusion research at GA has led to vital scientific discoveries as well as spinoff technologies that have advanced the state of the art in medical diagnostics, transportation, semiconductors, electronics, and defense applications.
General Atomics has developed a variety of advanced materials for nuclear and other challenging applications. GA affiliates also supply uranium and related services.
General Atomics was one of the pioneering firms in nuclear energy. We sold our first reactor in 1958, the same year the first commercial reactor in the U.S. came online. Sixty years later, we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in advanced nuclear reactors while helping to sustain our current reactor fleet and spinning off technologies that have the potential to enhance public safety and well-being.
