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.

This session will analyze Capital investment data from the Fukushima response to current investments improving performance and as responses to industry threats. Capital investment trends will be evaluated in terms of industry responses to external and internal challenges. Maria Hernandez, Nuclear Corporate Finance Manager for Duke Energy and Timothy Schlimpert, Vice President, MCR Performance Solutions will complete and present the analyses.
Supporting data is collected and provided for analysis by the Electric Utility Cost Group (EUCG); the only organization collecting robust industry cost data. All information is provided blinded to protect the confidentiality of all data contributors. For more on the EUCG visit: www.eucg.org
