The actual contract provided a fixed-price of $2,096,753 and included provisions for guaranteed operation to be proven during a 700-hour continuous operational test, followed by a 6-month test period during which the plant would produce usable power. The contract set the completion date as December 10, 1957, exclusive of the 6-month test period. To the Army, the operating plant would determine that the design "will meet urgent military requirements for small capacity nuclear power plants and would provide engineering data and experience which will be extremely valuable in the later programs to develop mobile plants or plants capable of disassembly for removal or relocation."28
