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.
Robotics & Remote Systems
The Mission of the Robotics and Remote Systems Division is to promote the development and application of immersive simulation, robotics, and remote systems for hazardous environments for the purpose of reducing hazardous exposure to individuals, reducing environmental hazards and reducing the cost of performing work.

Art exhibit visits IIT
Nuclear power plant cooling towers are easily recognizable for their familiar hyperboloid shape. But an art exhibit running at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago aims to give visitors a different perspective.
The Art of the Reactor, an exhibit by the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and hosted by IIT’s Lewis College of Science and Letters, opened on November 4 and runs until Sunday, December 4 at Hermann Hall on the IIT campus.

Panelists from industry and government will discuss the integration of safeguards and security into advanced reactor designs. Many emergent advanced reactor designs plan to use high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel, which is enriched to greater than 10% but less than 20% in uranium-235. In assessments of proliferation risk, the use of HALEU fuel should be considered in conjunction with other important reactor performance metrics, including higher power density, greater fuel utilization, longer refueling cycles, and higher fuel burnup, which may reduce overall proliferation risk. Panelists will discuss assessments of proliferation risk, measures planned to mitigate it in alternative advanced reactor designs, and by-design approaches to safeguards and security. They will also discuss the role of safeguards and security in enabling the US to maintain and expand its position in the global nuclear energy market and promote its own nonproliferation agenda.
