Treaty Verification

ORNL is a strong contributor to future nonproliferation and arms control initiatives through research and development of radiation detection techniques and their application to probable monitoring scenarios. Current ORNL efforts are focused towards investigating the role of passive and active radiation imaging for increasing monitor confidence in future monitoring regimes. Imaging techniques potentially address technology gaps associated with traditional measurement techniques for characterizing fissionable material. In collaboration with its national laboratory partners, ORNL is also studying the feasibility and acceptance of radiation detection techniques as related to the interplay between host and monitor needs and requirements.
