Ethernautics, Inc. – IT Infrastructure Engineering at Urenco (Nuclear Enrichment)

NEF March 2012

Michael W. Meissner at Ethernautics, Inc. in contract with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC)  provides IT Infrastructure Architecture Service to Urenco-USA aka Louisiana Energy Services (LES) and ET-US in Eunice, New Mexico, U.S.A.

Urenco is an Uranium Enrichment Company providing Enriched Uranium for the production of Nuclear Fuel in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle.

The enrichment process separates gaseous uranium hexafluoride into two streams, one being enriched to the required level known as low-enriched uranium (LEU); the other stream is progressively depleted in 235U and is called “tails”, or simply depleted uranium.

Enrichment Technologies-US (ET-US) provides technologies in large-scale commercial uranium enrichment using uranium hexafluoride gas as feed: gaseous diffusion and gas centrifuge (Read More).

The organization has some notoriety in it’s relationship to the Stuxnet virus.

Project Lifecycle: August 2007 – May 2012

Lead Systems Architect/RCDD – IT Engineering Team to design and build IT and Network Infrastructure to support Nuclear Enrichment Facility.
