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.

In 2019, the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded Idaho National Laboratory (INL) a grant to develop dynamic procedures and decision-support solutions for advanced reactors. The grant was aimed towards developing and commercializing a system with the functionality to revolutionize operator and system efficiency, as compared to existing paper-based processes.
Hear firsthand from principal experts as they describe insights about the new technology that aims to address a variety of industry challenges. Topics of discussion include barriers to adoption and the large number of procedures and data architecture required to address advanced reactors that feature increased levels of automation, sensors, and instrumentation.
Panelists will also discuss innovative ways their universities are using the generic PWR (gPWR) full scope simulator in research and the classroom to educate the next generation of nuclear industry professionals.
