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.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

New polls show substantial support for nuclear energy
Sixty percent of respondents in a recent national survey favored the use of nuclear energy, with only 25 percent opposing its use. While the latest Bisconti Research poll focuses on nuclear power and electricity generation, its findings on public interest in climate change and using a spectrum of sources to meet energy needs are consistent with a recent Pew Research Center poll on a broad set of energy policy and climate change topics. The approaches the two online surveys took to measuring public opinion on nuclear energy yielded different numbers but found some common ground.

The Japanese Government designated JAEA as the Domestic Agency of Japan (JADA) for the ITER Project just after the entry into force of the ITER Agreement on 24th Oct. 2007. In-kind procurements allotted to JADA amount to about 16% of the total according to the "Common Understandings on Procurement Allocation". The first procurement arrangement for 25% of the TF superconductors was concluded in November 2007 between the ITER Organization (IO) and the JADA After the bidding, venders for fabricating 15% of the TF conductors were selected in March 2008. The Quality Assurance Program of JADA, that is indispensable for implementing procurement, was approved by IO, and the Project Management of JADA subsequently got underway. Preparation for the procurement continues for the instruments and equipment that JA has the responsibility to procure. JADA also has performed tasks requested by IO on the PF conductor and the accelerator of the neutral beam injector system, etc.
