Containment & Surveillance Systems Laboratory

The Containment and Surveillance Systems Laboratory is an arm of the highly acclaimed ORNL Safeguards Technology Integration Center. This lab is used to evaluate and develop custom technology, as well as integrate, mock up, and stage equipment for evaluation deployments for a variety of containment and surveillance  applications. Activities in this lab focus on integrating technology for sealing, monitoring, and tracking nuclear material in a variety of environments. It is well suited for developing, integrating, and deploying active and passive tamper-indicating devices and enclosures, unattended and remote monitoring systems, and wired and wireless attribute-monitoring systems.
