Episode Description

It has been debated in the last few years that we need to enhance the US commitment to the development of Nuclear Power. At T3 we have devoted several podcasts on nuclear power both in the US and internationally. Concerns have been the safety of new reactors, costs, and the actual process to recycle nuclear waste. Today, we have two guests who are experts in advancement of nuclear energy. Our first guest is Mr. Ed Pheil, Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder Elysium Industry in the US and Canada. Additionally, our second guest is Mr. Steve Curtis a nuclear energy expert with over 30 years. Today, we will explore the advantages and disadvantages of Gen IV reactors and specifically discuss the development and installment of molten chloride salt fast reactor as a major source of nuclear energy. Joins us at T3, as we discuss and review the most dynamic challenges to nuclear energy and its capability to provide our future energy needs.

Today, Tomorrow’s Technologies

Today, Tomorrow’s Technologies (T3) enables our scientists, engineers and innovators to establish a daily dialogue with a non-techy listener. This engagement will expand our understanding of how technology can impact our daily lives. The goal is to simplify, avoid the tech mystery and encourage the study or participation in these new disciplines. T3 benefits will answer the following questions:
a. What are the positive or negative impacts in the new technology?
b. When can these technologies impact our daily routine?
c. How can society benefit from these technologies?
T3 will cover a variety of engineering, scientific and future technologies. Topics include autonomous vehicles, disruptive products, cyber technologies, smart homes/devices, unmanned aerial vehicles, smart phone, now what?, space exploration/activities, electric technologies, energy/alternate energy, tech government vs commercial, technology in high schools, future robots, and the next inventions.

Jose Negron

Mr. Jose Negron is CEO/President at AVANTI Technologies, Inc., an Annandale, Virginia, veteran-owned small business. He retired from the USAF in 2005 in the rank of Colonel after 29 years of service.

Mr. Negron has 40 years of government and commercial experiences working on major technology programs, analytical activities with budgetary consequences, and pioneered research for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). His program manager experiences were tested leading to major application and research successes, in 1994 he led the Sarajevo/Rwanda Humanitarian relief effort with Geneva AirOps, Switzerland, in 1999 organized the first interaction to structure how the USAF Air Expeditionary Force (AEF) was to deploy, in 2000 led the analytic/tech study for the Air War over Serbia, led the 2004 1st DARPA Grand Challenge Autonomous Vehicle event across the Mojave desert. Currently, he leads two medical revolutionary efforts: 1) Numobag for advanced wound care, and 2) NeuChroma vision glasses, and today, the visionary for the technical understanding and visualization of electronic warfare (radio frequency) and cyber digital formats with impacts on humanity.

Mr. Negron’s technical insights are often sought out to assist or lead the future planning of research efforts as the result of his past successes to plan, schedule, integrate, and execute one-of-a-kind programs or activities leaving a positive mark on our nation and globally.
