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.

Predictions: What lies ahead for nuclear in 2022
As we begin a new year, it is natural not only to look back (see page 24 for top news stories of 2021) but also to look forward. Nuclear News reached out to leaders in the nuclear community to get their predictions on what 2022 has in store, whether broadly or for their specific areas within the community. Although the responses below are wide-ranging and varied, one thing is made clear by all of the respondents: 2022 will see growth and opportunity. The future for nuclear is bright.
12th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2021)
Monday, June 14, 2021|12:00–2:30PM (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.
