Abstract: Australia's original nuclear research reactor is the HIFAR reactor run by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) at Lucas Heights, south of Sydney. This reactor, pictured on the front cover, has operated for more than 30 years with an excellent safety record, and its safety remains at the highest level. Unfortunately, however, the HIFAR reactor is now nearing the end of its working life. Its capabilities have also been overtaken by later designs. It has therefore been proposed that HIFAR should be replaced by a new reactor, using the very latest technologies and designs, to serve the country for the first half of the 21st century. This brochure has been produced by ANSTO to introduce you to these proposals.
