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.
The division's objectives are to promote the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical phenomena characterizing nuclear reactors and other nuclear systems. The division encourages research and disseminates information through meetings and publications. Areas of technical interest include nuclear data, particle interactions and transport, reactor and nuclear systems analysis, methods, design, validation and operating experience and standards. The Wigner Award heads the awards program.

This Future of Nuclear Maritime Propulsion panel is the final in a series of sessions sponsored by DESD and OPD. At the 2021 Annual Meeting, we looked at the history of non-naval nuclear power. At the 2021 Winter Meeting, we discussed the decommissioning of the NS Savannah, including a virtual tour of the ship. At this meeting we will look at the potential future of non-naval nuclear propulsion and floating offshore nuclear power generation and its opportunities and challenges.
Recent Department of Energy grants have spurred interest in this subject. These grants and other opportunities will also be discussed during this session.
