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.
Nuclear Installations Safety
Devoted specifically to the safety of nuclear installations and the health and safety of the public, this division seeks a better understanding of the role of safety in the design, construction and operation of nuclear installation facilities. The division also promotes engineering and scientific technology advancement associated with the safety of such facilities.

The U.S. Army’s Deactivated Nuclear Power Plant Program
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Baltimore District, is home to the North Atlantic Division’s Radiological Health Physics Regional (RHPR) Center of Expertise, which is leading the decommissioning of Army reactors.
From 1956 to 1976, the Army’s nuclear power program operated several small nuclear reactors to confirm the feasibility of their meeting military power needs on land. Three Army reactors were deactivated in the 1970s and placed into safe storage awaiting future decommissioning.

In this paper we discuss the implementation of Raman spectroscopy for compositional analysis, and monitoring and control of tritium-carrying gas flows. Specifically, we discuss how the criteria for the detection and handling of tritium impact on the conceptual design and actual system suitability and performance in applications such as the KATRIN experiment or the ITER fuel cycle, which require real-time, in-line monitoring and control.
