Project Highlights

Enrichment Technology


Provided complete design, fabrication, and testing for a gas capture system as part of a new gas centrifuge technology for isotope production and other applications at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Authority to Operate


BGS assessed information systems, identified gaps, and created system security plans and documentation (authorization packages) to allow the client (N3B) to continue to operate the Enterprise Business Network, and four other mission critical systems (telemetry and Industrial Controls) for the Los Alamos National Laboratory Environmental Management contract.

Renewable / Alternative Energy


BGS supports planning, management, and oversight of renewable/alternative energy R&D projects for the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy (EERE). This work supports our nation’s $2 Billon investment in renewable/alternative technologies such as Solar, Wind, Geothermal and Bioenergy Technologies. The program also includes Advanced Manufacturing, Electric Vehicles, Energy Efficiency and other investments important to our nation’s competitiveness and energy security.

Nuclear Threat Detection Software


Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL): BGS supports the Wearable Intelligent Nuclear Detection Advanced Technology Demonstration (WIND ATD) Project by providing IT project management and software development services for the next generation of integrated, mobile, smart technology used to detect nuclear threats.

Supporting Department of Defense Cybersecurity Compliance


Contractors for the DoD must meet the CMMC requirements for Cybersecurity programs. BGS is one of the first 21 contractors to be approved to evaluate and certify a firm’s cyber security programs (3CPAO) per the new requirement. BGS can also perform a preliminary evaluation to identify weakness (RPO), provide a roadmap to compliance and assist with updates to prepare for certification.

Updating the Cyber Defenses at National Nuclear Security Sites


BGS performed Blue Team penetration testing and gap analysis of cyber defenses at two National Nuclear Security Sites. We are now working to modernize the IT infrastructure and increase cyber resiliency for the unclassified and classified networks. This project is consolidating 200+ security plans into the NIST-compliant Risk Management Framework and enhancing implementation of controls.

System Support of NASA Space Exploration Initiatives


Providing NASA Pu-238 production system support services for ORNL to re-establish production of Pu-238, which uses isotopes to power deep space exploration probes. Supported development, automation, and system integrations of multiple technologies (IoT, databases, SCADA, visualization applications) in support of NASA space exploration.

Nuclear Safety Basis


Safety analysis to support plutonium heat sources (fabrication, handling, and storage activities for all ground operations) that power NASA space missions. This work supports the Idaho National Laboratory and NASA launch activities.

Safety Analysis for Nuclear Explosive Operations


BGS has an updated safety analysis method and delivered training on that method that incorporates the latest requirements to ensure safe nuclear explosive operations at the NNSA Pantex Plant (HAR Process).
