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 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.

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.
Mathematics & Computation (M&C) 2021 Speaker
Dr. Miller was born in Chicago, IL in 1943 and was an elementary school friend of Emmett Till who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 sparking the Civil Rights Movement under the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. Miller was admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1960, graduating in 1964. He is a Viet Nam veteran and is a recipient of the Bronze Star. He entered Northwestern University in 1969 and was awarded a PhD in Engineering Sciences in 1973. His research was in computational methods of neutron transport and he co-authored a text book on the subject. He served for almost 30 years and retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in 2001, achieving the rank of Deputy Laboratory Director for Science and Technology. He has served since then in part time or consultant capacities at the University of New Mexico, LANL, Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, AZIsotopes LLC, Texas A & M University and Kairos Power.In 2009, he was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy serving under the leadership of Secretary Stephen Chu in the first Obama Administration.Dr. Miller is a recipient of the Northwestern University Alumni Merit Award and was named by the National Society of Black Engineers as its 2004 Distinguished Engineer.Dr. Miller is a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society and in 1996 was elected to the National Academy of Engineers.
