Also reactors have become much more advanced though mosting in military technology. Most Naval nuclear engineers are very familiar with the compact size and insane energy output of these secret reactors. What isn't secret is that they are very advanced, what is secret is how they pull it off.

Besides, nuclear weapons are really rather simple, and there isn't really much room for development in such things.
