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.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

Offshore nuclear power concept under development by BWXT and Crowley
BWX Technologies is teaming with Crowley, a global shipping and energy supply chain company, under a memorandum of understanding to develop a ship with an onboard microreactor that could deliver power to users on shore via buoyed power cables. The concept, announced by both companies on September 20, is envisioned as a zero-carbon energy option for defense and disaster needs.

This session will feature cutting edge modernization projects which are developing modern control rooms for the US operating fleet. This session will showcase how these projects have leveraged best in class human machine interfaces and analysis techniques to develop a modern concept of operations. This modern concept of operations drives a control room design which reduces operational risk while providing the right quality and spectrum of data to the Operators. This sustainable model allows for plant architecture design evolution and long-term sustainability including addressing the needs of the future workforce and retention of younger operators. This is done through task analyses, function allocation and analysis, and verification & validation applying an innovative approach to human systems integration (HSI) design. This session will have presentations from several individuals who are applying these innovative design techniques that are changing the way we design and operate our plants.
