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.

The New Republican podcast features ANS policy guru John Starkey
ANS government relations director John Starkey was a recent guest on the podcast The New Republican. Starkey discussed a range of topics with podcast host Lincoln Wallis in the 30-minute episode, “All Things Nuclear.”
“In 2020, nuclear energy became the second-largest source of electricity in the United States,” Starkey said in response to Wallis’s first question, adding, “That would entail nearly 20 percent of electric generation in the U.S. Nuclear energy has also operated at 90 percent capacity rate for the past 20 years or so. No other source of electricity can touch those [capacity] numbers.… I really see [nuclear energy] being a leader in decarbonization in the country and the world.”
Zachry Nuclear is a full service engineering firm that has been providing engineering, design, software development, and operations & maintenance (O&M) support services for electric utilities, advanced reactor designers, research organizations, regulators, Architect/Engineers, fuel vendors, and government energy agencies worldwide for over 45 years. Zachry Nuclear, and predecessors, Proto-Power Corporation (PPC), Numerical Applications, Inc. (NAI) and Computer Simulation & Analysis, Inc. (CSA), are internationally recognized for our expertise in thermal hydraulics analysis, radiological analysis, safety analysis and software development. We develop several industry standard analysis codes such as GOTHIC (coarse grid CFD), RETRAN-3D (system thermal-hydraulic and 3D neutron kinetics), VIPRE (subchannel), PROTO-FLO (piping analysis and design), PROTO-HX (heat exchanger performance), RADTRAD-NAI (dose and radiological consequences) and also develop custom software solutions. We specialize in applying these and other tools to provide significant cost savings for our clients through efficiency improvements, margin recapture, operations flexibility, and effective designs by developing innovative engineering solutions through automation, optimization, advanced modeling and simulation and machine learning methods. Our clients include existing plants and advanced reactor vendors supporting many of the SMR, non-LWR and microreactors currently being designed and developed both in the US and internationally.
