The AMS campus spans over 100,000 square feet of office, laboratory and expansion space staffed by highly qualified specialists with degrees in electrical, mechanical, nuclear, chemical, computer and material engineering. Approximately 70 percent of the company’s activities are dedicated to performing field measurements in nuclear power plants. The remaining 30 percent is divided into equipment development, laboratory testing, research and development, and technical training.
We are very proud of our comprehensive Quality Assurance program. It has been audited by NUPIC every 2 to 3 years for the last 30 years. It is also designed to comply with 10CFR50 Appendix B and its related standards. AMS is an accredited A2LA Laboratory (A2LA Cert. No. 3483.01) for qualification testing of a variety of components for nuclear power plants and other industries.
We also perform high-level technology research and development projects for a number of national and international organizations and governmental agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, U.S. Navy, and the Electric Power Research Institute. Furthermore, we work with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), International Electrical Commission (IEC), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and International Society of Automation (ISA) to produce consensus standards and guidelines for maintenance of nuclear power plants.
