In February 2013 the Aerospace Nuclear Science and Technology Division (ANSTD) of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) will hold the 2013 Nuclear and Emerging Technologies for Space (NETS 2012) topical meeting in Albuquerque, NM. This conference represents the second stand-alone topical meeting in Albuquerque, NM since the previous Space Technologies and Applications International Forum (STAIF) and follows a successful meeting in 2012, which was held in conjunction with the 43rd Lunar Planetary Science Conference.

Topic Areas

NASA is currently developing capabilities for robotic and crewed missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. Strategies that implement advanced power and propulsion technologies, as well as radiation protection, will be important in accomplishing these missions in the future. NETS serves as a major communications network and forum for professionals and students working in the area of space nuclear technology. Every year it facilitates the exchange of information among research and management personnel from international government, industry, academia, and the national laboratory systems. To this end, the NETS 2013 meeting will address topics ranging from overviews of current programs to methods of meeting the challenges of future space endeavors.
