Combating Nuclear Smuggling: Lessons Learned from DHS Testing of Advanced Radiation Detection Portal Monitors: Congressional Testimony
Gene Aloise (au)
The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) is responsible for addressing the threat of nuclear smuggling. Radiation detection portal monitors are key elements in the nation's defenses against such threats. New monitors, known as advanced spectroscopic portal (ASP) monitors, have been tested to replace radiation detection equipment. DNDO expects that ASPs may offer improvements over current-generation portal monitors, particularly the potential to identify as well as detect radioactive material. However, ASPs cost significantly more than current generation portal monitors. This testimony addresses: (1) findings on DNDO's latest round of ASP testing; and (2) lessons from ASP testing that can be applied to other DHS technology investments.
