Nuclear detection?

The global nuclear detection architecture is a framework for detecting (through technical and non-technical means), analyzing and reporting nuclear and other radioactive materials that are beyond regulatory control. The threat of radiological attacks has led several organizations to develop specially designed nuclear detection systems. These systems differ in design and capabilities. It provides participants with an understanding of the agencies involved in detecting the smuggling of radiological and nuclear materials, and explains their roles and responsibilities.

This can be achieved in part through improved radiological and nuclear detection devices, as well as improved procedures and response. A strong technical capacity for nuclear and forensic detection is important for the security of the nation. The detection of radiological and nuclear material is an invaluable part of the overall strategy in preventing illicit trafficking and the safety of the United States and its citizens. The objective is to improve the ability of law enforcement to detect and intercept the smuggling of radiological and nuclear materials as they move across international borders.

The monitors will be secretly and strategically placed around the city in the hope of detecting radiological and nuclear material. But concern remains that ASPs have too limited a capacity to detect highly enriched uranium, a weakly radioactive material that is easier to use in an improvised nuclear device, i. There have been several proposals to solve the problem of detecting radiological and nuclear material. We have developed a general workshop on combating nuclear smuggling and a training course on detection operations and associated equipment.

This testimony provides preliminary observations based on the ongoing work it addresses (the state of DNDO's efforts to develop a global nuclear detection architecture), (the challenges faced by the DNDO and other federal agencies in implementing the architecture) and (the costs of programs that constitute architecture. This training focuses on the detection of radiological and nuclear materials at international border crossings (land, sea and air). Of course, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would prefer to intercept this nuclear material abroad, and although there are currently projects that address this need, they still face problems and cannot guarantee the prevention of the spread of nuclear and radiological material. DHS has recently proposed to test the effectiveness of new radiological and nuclear detection devices.

This document will analyze the need for radiological and nuclear detection devices, review current and proposed systems, and finally review the budget for the program.
