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.

Finland in Front: The World’s Likely First Spent Fuel Repository Moves Toward Licensing
The year 2024 is shaping up to be a historic one for Posiva, the waste management organization owned by Finland’s two nuclear power plant utilities, Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima. The company is looking to receive regulatory approval of its operating license for the Onkalo deep geological repository for high-level radioactive waste by the end of the year.

Innovative and collaborative work has progressed nationally and internationally regarding hybrid and integrated energy systems, including those with nuclear, nonnuclear (including hydrogen), and renewable components. Optimal energy generation and prioritization strategies can be advanced using various metrics such as reliability, security, affordability, ﬂexibility, resiliency, and sustainability. In many cases, risk and reliability methods offer insights that are difficult to obtain otherwise to evaluate coordinated use of various energy generators to meet energy demands across the electricity, industrial, and transportation sectors.
This panel will discuss national laboratory and commercial industry experience, challenges and insights gained considering integrated and hybrid energy systems using risk and reliability methods. Progress in building applicable datasets and running dynamic simulations will also be discussed.
