President's Profile Steven Arndt: Prioritizing participation and advocacy
Steven Arndt began his one-year term last month as president of the American Nuclear Society, bringing the same high level of energy, investment, and action he has exhibited throughout his career. Reflecting on a life spent improving nuclear safety and technology, he notes that it’s not just the work; it’s also about the people and building connections and relationships. Arndt fondly recalls Peter Lyons, former NRC commissioner, assistant secretary of energy for nuclear energy, and ANS board member who passed away in April 2021. “I have been incredibly lucky to know and work with some great people in our field, and almost to a person they have been like Pete Lyons,” Arndt said. “They have been gregarious, outgoing, and supportive.”

The development and deployment of the VERA suite in the CASL program necessarily integrated a multi-institutional, multi-language set of tools for deployment to the nuclear industry. At the heart of this effort was the software infrastructure team who was charged with integrating these capabilities, ensuring all of the components work together, and packaging up VERA for release using an agile development process. This panel will discuss the various capabilities that have been developed over CASL to support this mission along with the impacts of having this infrastructure on the development teams, university researchers, and industry collaborators
