Abstract

The SLOWPOKE-2 nuclear research reactor at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC) went critical in 1985 and successfully served to the Department of National Defence (DND) ever since. Originally intended is to be an educational tool, SLOWPOKE Facility successfully implemented many other capabilities over the years of service, such as neutron activation analysis, neutron radiography, delayed neutron analysis and nuclear forensics, production of small amounts of short-lived radioisotopes and radiation processing. The SLOWPOKE-2 Facility capabilities and continuous enhancements are discussed.
