Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

The rapid progress towards the commercial development of space has significantly changed the landscape for the deployment of space nuclear technologies. Where space nuclear power was once the nearly exclusive domain of the Department of Energy and NASA, there is now a commercially driven demand for space nuclear technologies to support private space exploration missions and in-situ resource utilization efforts. In parallel, private companies (both start-ups and long-established reactor vendors) are emerging to meet this demand. This panel will examine the exciting new world of commercial space nuclear technology development. Alan Boyle, contributing editor to GeekWire, will moderate a round table discussion on opportunities for space nuclear power technologies in the context of commercial space development.
Each of the panelists will start with a brief talk about their perspective on space nuclear technologies, followed by a discussion led by the moderator. Finally, the panel will take questions from the audience.
