Combating Nuclear Smuggling: Risk-Informed Covert Assessments and Oversight of Corrective Actions Could Strengthen Capabilities at the Border
David C. Maurer (au)
Preventing terrorists from smuggling nuclear or radiological materials into the U.S. is a top national priority. To address this threat, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has deployed radiation detection equipment and trained staff to use it. DHS's U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) conducts covert operations to test capabilities for detecting and interdicting nuclear and radiological materials at air, land, and sea ports of entry into the U.S. as well as checkpoints. This report assesses the extent to which (1) CBP covert operations assess capabilities at air, land, and sea ports and checkpoints to detect and interdict nuclear and radiological material smuggled across the border; and (2) CBP reports its covert operations results and provides oversight to ensure that corrective actions are implemented. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
