A recognized market leader in the testing and development of specialized equipment and services for preventative maintenance and aging management in nuclear plants, AMS remains a principal source for cable diagnostics, sensor response time testing, reactor diagnostics, rod drop-time measurements, temperature sensor cross-calibration, EMI / RFI mapping / troubleshooting / qualification testing, on-line condition monitoring and nuclear instrumentation system diagnostics.
In addition, AMS performs high technology research and development projects for the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, U.S. Navy, utilities, manufacturers, and vendors.
AMS offers a number of specialty training courses in the areas of process instrumentation, I&C maintenance, I&C aging management, online monitoring, equipment and process condition monitoring, and related subjects.
AMS regularly holds a five-day course in the USA to cover the latest developments in I&C maintenance technologies. The same course is also conducted once every three years in Europe. The location of courses rotates annually to best fit the needs of attendees. AMS will also bring the course to the facility of any company or organization that enrolls at least five people.
AMS can design courses to a client’s specification. Such courses are designed and developed in consultation with clients and are based on material compiled by AMS. The duration of the custom courses is usually two to three days; they are held at any location desired by the client, including AMS’ facilities.
