Since its inception in 1962, RSICC has evolved into one of the world’s leading resources for a broad range of the best available nuclear computational tools and services. RSICC software and data collections provide in-depth coverage of radiation transport and safety topics encompassing, but not limited to:

Physics of the interaction of radiation with matter
Radiation production and sources
Criticality safety
Radiation protection and shielding
Radiation detectors and measurements
Shielding materials properties
Shields and shipping cask design
Radiation waste management
Radiological safety and assessment
Atmospheric dispersion and environmental dose
Radiation dose in medical applications
Space shielding applications


RSICC Deploys Secure Cloud Server

RSICC would like to inform our customers that we are deploying a secure cloud computing system that will be made available to our customers that meet following criteria:

1. The individual is from a country for which a specific export authorization would be required;
2. The individual would likely be denied or have restricted access to software; and
3. It is in the interest of the U.S. government to provide access to the software.

Individuals that meet the criteria listed above and are in one of the following categories will automatically be considered for access:

1. Individuals that indicate that they are collaborating with US organizations such as US national laboratories or US universities;
2. Individuals that indicate that they are teaching or conducting research at US universities; and
3. Students at US universities.

Other individuals may be granted access to the secure cloud as requested by RSICC’s sponsors and approved by RSICC’s regulators.

RSICC will screen all requests for MCNP6.1, SCALE6.1 and RELAP5/MOD3.3 to determine if an individual qualifies for access to RSICC’s secure cloud computing system. The request will be submitted to our regulators. If approved, the customer will be required to provide specific information to RSICC and agree to certain terms and conditions before being granted access to the system. Individuals that are approved will not be permitted to utilize these codes except on RSICC's secure cloud computing system. If an individual is approved for access to RSICC's secure cloud computing system and does not consent to the terms and conditions, the individual's request will be mark as denied.

The deployment of this system will allow RSICC to grant use of certain codes to some of our customers who otherwise would not be authorized. RSICC would like to thank its sponsors, the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration's Office of Nonproliferation and Arms Control, for supporting the development and deployment of this system.




The Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC) is a Department of Energy Specialized Information Analysis Center (SIAC) authorized to collect, analyze, maintain, and distribute computer software and data sets in the areas of radiation transport and safety. RSICC resides in the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division (RNSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
