Title Defense Science Board Task Force Report: Assessment of Nuclear Monitoring and Verification.
Publication Date Jan 2014
Media Count 113p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract The Defense Science Board Task Force on Assessment of Nuclear Treaty Monitoring and Verification Technologies was established to examine a broad range of questions concerning the capability of the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Intelligence Community (IC) to support future monitoring and verification of nuclear nonproliferation and arms control treaties. The Terms of Reference (TOR) for the study, found in Appendix B, state the tasking. Given the breadth of the topics of interest to our sponsoring leadership and the time and resources available, the Task Force determined to focus on those aspects of the TOR that address what it views as the priority issue namely, monitoring for proliferation. Assessments of strategies for monitoring nuclear activities in both permissive and non permissive environments, and of our current technical capabilities and future requirements for successfully implementing those strategies, were made.
