ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Nuclear technology provides numerous benefits to American society as a reliable, clean source of electricity. Additionally, nuclear technology strengthens national security. The ability to expand our nuclear fleet is crucial for maintaining American influence in the global nuclear industry. Educational institutions create a pipeline for people to become experts in nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and international treaty verification necessary for this expansion. In this session, we will look at the current influence of nuclear technology on American national security and where the country stands in leading the future global nuclear industry. Fast-forward ten years, what should U.S. nuclear interests be, and what role should the U.S. play in the worldwide development of nuclear technology while strengthening national security? The multitude of stakeholders involved in nuclear science are all working towards the improvement of the current and future status of nuclear energy, technology, and policy in the U.S. But what is this shared goal, and what path should be taken to get there?
