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.

Every 4 years the international nuclear criticality safety community gathers to discuss technical, operational, computational, and regulatory issues in the practice of nuclear criticality safety. The 2015 International Conference on Nuclear Criticality (ICNC 2015) allowed specialists from around the globe to come together to discuss, analyze, and study the latest developments in the area of nuclear criticality safety. This was a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with industry experts, leaders, colleagues, and peers. For the first time in 20 years, ICNC was back in the United States. The meeting included a 4-day technical program covering all areas of nuclear criticality safety in nuclear operations.
