Space Nuclear Systems Forum  (SNSF-2010)

February 9-11, 2010

U.S. Space and Rocket Center Educator Training Facility
Huntsville, AL



About the Meeting

The goal of SNSF-2010 is to provide information and training opportunities on space nuclear systems and to establish a productive dialogue among technical system designers and potential user groups for both fission and radioisotope power systems. The two-and-one-half day forum will consist of plenary sessions with invited speakers, panel sessions, and small working group sessions for focused discussion. The forum will be small and focused and will not include peer reviewed, published papers.

Participation from potential space nuclear system users / mission planners and space nuclear system designers / specialists is strongly encouraged at SNSF-2010. To allow for productive interaction, seating will be limited.

The U.S. Space and Rocket Center neighbors the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. Tours of NASA facilities relevant to the space nuclear systems programs will be arranged for interested individuals. Please indicate your interest in participating in these tours on the Participant Form. Access to NASA facilities requires advance arrangements to clear all visitors, so please submit your forms early.

A full technical conference will be held in February 2011. Researchers are encouraged to submit full-length technical papers to Nuclear and Emerging Technologies for Space (NETS-2011), as topical meeting of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) sponsored by the ANS Aerospace Nuclear Science and Technology Division and the ANS Trinity Section and supported by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
