Technology Exercise to Investigate Performance of Measurement Methods: Working Group 6: Technologies for Verification

Research output: Report/bookER - External report

Abstract

At the end of Phase I in December 2017, the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV, or Partnership) identified “testing and exercising potentially promising technologies and procedures” as a key next step. In this framework, Belgium proposed and organized an international exercise at the site of the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) in Mol, Belgium. The aim of the exercise was testing and comparing measurement techniques to be potentially used for the verification of nuclear material in the framework of the dismantlement of nuclear weapons. Although analyzing and interpreting the data is currently ongoing, this report summarizes the content of the exercise and the experimental campaign carried out between September 9–26, 2019
