The operational features determining innovative approaches to the design of space nuclear energy installations are analyzed. It is shown that there is no alternative to space nuclear energy for solving potential problems and the main directions of its use are determined. The main results obtained at NIKIET on the development of a nuclear rocket motor and space nuclear energy installations with turbomachine energy conversion are presented. A comparative analysis with the results obtained in the US space program is given.
