Ground-Based Interceptors like this one are deployed in Fort Greely, Alaska, and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, to defend against missile attacks on the U.S. homeland. The Missile Defense Agency plans to raise the number deployed to 44 and improve their Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicles.

MQ-4C TRITON
1 ENGINE: Rolls-Royce AE3007H turbofan.
Popular for business jets. Same engine as Global Hawks. 
2 STEERABLE VIDEO CAMERA: Raytheon Multi-Spectral Targeting
System-B. Also flown on Air Force Predator drones. 
3 REINFORCED WINGS protect against low-altitude hazards,
including bird strikes, hail and wind gusts. Electric de-icing coils heat leading edges and also tail. 
4 INLET: Redesigned to prevent icing.
5 RADAR: Northrop Grumman Multi-Function Active Sensor for all-weather detection. 
6 SIERRA NEVADA CORP. electronic support measures system
detects signals emitted by vessels. 
7 SAAB AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM, or AIS, to track and
identify ships — even if they have turned off their AIS broadcasts. 
8 UHF-VHF radio antennas.

Workers at NASA's Kennedy Space Center
install
the radioisotope thermoelectric generator onto the New Horizons probe for its journey past Pluto. A fission reactor on a probe would be much more powerful than such RTGs.

Reactor setup
In the Kilopower test that NASA and the Energy Department plan to
run in mid-2017, a uranium-fueled fission reactor 1 will produce heat carried by eight sodium heat pipes 2 to Stirling engines 3 which convert heat into electricity.

A study partly funded by NASA envisions a lunar base where astronauts would oversee
the work of machines digging up water ice, breaking it down into liquid hydrogen and
liquid oxygen, which would be stored in tanks.
