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.

Public support for nuclear energy is highest among plant neighbors
Ninety-one percent of residents living near U.S. nuclear power plants have a favorable impression of those plants, according to Bisconti Research’s ninth biennial survey. In addition, 88 percent of those residents have positive opinions of nuclear energy in general, and 78 percent would support the addition of a new reactor at their neighboring plant—a number that increases to 86 percent if the new reactor is a small modular reactor.

Tactical Technology Office (TTO)
Maj. Nathan Greiner joined DARPA in July 2018 as a program manager in the Tactical Technology Office. His research interests include advanced power and propulsion technologies for land, sea, air, and space applications.
Before joining DARPA, Maj. Greiner completed a one-year fellowship at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, where he focused on materials research. Previously, he served as a deputy branch chief and hypersonics research engineer in the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s Aerospace Systems Directorate at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. He also has held positions as a liaison officer with U.S. Special Operations Command at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, and program manager for U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida.
Maj. Greiner holds a Doctor of Philosophy in aeronautical engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology, a Master of Science in mechanical engineering from the University of Utah, and a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.
