Nuclear reactor portable brigade sized?
Thanks to the tip from Matt.

A small portable nuclear-reactor power-plant capable of providing power for deployed American troops in remote and rugged areas.

"Pentagon awards contracts to design mobile nuclear reactor"
"WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Monday issued three contracts to start design work on mobile, small nuclear reactors, as part of a two-step plan towards achieving nuclear power for American forces at home and abroad"
A SMALL SAFE PORTABLE NUCLEAR REACTOR PROVIDING A MODICUM OF ON-CALL ELECTRICAL POWER FOR A BRIGADE SIZED UNIT DEPLOYED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. CAN IT BE DONE?
An idea hardly unique also. Portable atomic reactors on a much more massive scale mounted on ships or barges [Soviet/Russian and American] with an ability to be connected to "shore power" in case of war or extreme emergency.
