Safe, reliable, low‐mass bimodal space power and propulsion systems could have numerous civilian and military applications. This paper discusses potential bimodal systems that could be derived from the ALERT space fission power supply concept (Ranken 1990). These bimodal concepts have the potential for providing 5 to 10 kW of electrical power and a total impulse of 100 MN‐s at an average specific impulse of 770 s. System mass is on the order of 1000 kg.
