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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

Route readiness elements in a large-scale spent nuclear fuel transportation system
The scale and duration of a national campaign to transport spent nuclear fuel (SNF) from commercial nuclear power plants around the United States would be unprecedented. A meticulous level of planning that considers many elements is needed to inspire public confidence and support.
12th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2021)
Monday, June 14, 2021|1:00–3:30PM EDT
Dan Goldberg (ANS)
Nuclear instrumentation, controls, and human-machine interface technologies are a vital component of the next generation of advanced reactors. The pace of advances in novel ICHMI technologies and their deployment has increased in recent years, and they are essential to achieving the enhanced safety and improved economics of advanced reactors. Speakers from across the ICHMI community will discuss recent successes, what we have learned, and preview exciting advances and opportunities to assure success with deploying the next generation of reactors.
