Description
 
The Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) established the Megaports Initiative in 2003 to deter, detect, and interdict nuclear or other radiological materials smuggled through foreign seaports. The Initiative funds the installation of radiation detection equipment at select seaports overseas and trains foreign personnel to use this equipment to scan shipping containers entering and leaving these seaports regardless of destination. NNSA provides partner countries with maintenance and technical support for about 3 years, after which it transfers the equipment and all related responsibilities to partner countries. This report examines (1) the status of the Megaports Initiative and NNSAs plans for completing and sustaining it and (2) the benefits of the Initiative and factors that reduce its effectiveness. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
