In February 2011 the Aerospace Nuclear Science and Technology Division (ANSTD) of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) will hold its first stand-alone topical meeting in Albuquerque, NM. The momentum and positive collaborative environment established by the former Space Technologies and Applications International Forum (STAIF), last held in 2008, has been upheld by a series of discussion forums and technical meetings sponsored by ANSTD in 2009 and 2010 (see SNSF and NETS-2009 on the Prior Meetings Page), and NETS-2011 will bring these formats together in a single venue.
NASA is currently developing capabilities for unmanned and manned missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Strategies implementing advanced power and propulsion technologies, as well as radiation shielding protection, will be an integral part of successful missions of these types. NETS-2011 will provide a communications network and forum for information exchange for the wide cross section of research and management personnel from government, industry, academia, and the national laboratory system that are involved in space nuclear activities.
