Issaquah companies aid nuclear cleanup effort A pair of Issaquah companies could make it easier for federal officials to clean up nuclear waste. Software created by GoldSim Technology Group, based in Is- saquah, is at the heart of a new federal Department of Energy pro- gram to better manage nuclear waste site cleanups. A program will allow energy department managers to track and quantify risks and gauge budget concerns and legal issues. GoldSim risk-modeling software is used in the Prioritization Risk Integration Simulation Model to help officials evaluate how best to proceed with the remediation and environmental cleanup of a nu- clear waste site. Predicus LLC, also of Issaquah, is developing PRISM. The model will be deployed for the first time at the Department of Energy Hanford Site in Eastern Washington -- one of 80 nuclear cleanup sites nationwide. If PRISM is successful at Han- ford, energy department officials could be used to integrate all 80 sites. MILITARY NEWS local's son attends Na~ aviator bMning Navy Ensign Reid A.
