Advanced Nuclear System Safety and Licensing Group

The Advanced Nuclear System Safety and Licensing Group provides siting, safety, and systems analysis for advanced reactor systems. This includes support for deployment of advanced reactors, microreactors, and space reactor systems as well as reactor expertise for safeguard and security activities.  The group's vision is for major sponsors and future collaborators to look first to ORNL for deploying newly developed technology in these areas, with the group's staff providing technical support, guidance, direction, and leadership.  Over the next decade, the group envisions supporting successful rollouts of advanced technology for the existing nuclear energy fleet, the first wave of advanced reactor systems, and special nuclear applications in space and defense.
