It's not clear to me whether the word licenced refers to a software
license, or to US regulatory licenses you would need to get in order
to use said software in a nuclear facility.

If we have the option of interpreting this text to mean that Sun asks
you to acknowledge that the software has not been approved (licensed)
for use in such facilities by the appropriate parts of the US
government, then we should do so, especially if it renders the license
