Combating Nuclear Smugging: Lessons Learned from Cancelled Radiation Portal Monitor Program Could Help Future Acquisitions
David C. Trimble (au); Timothy M. Persons (au)
The Dept. of Homeland Securityäó»s (DHSäó»s) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) develops and deploys radiation detection equipment to assist other federal agencies, such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in intercepting illicit radiological or nuclear materials that could be used to make a radiological dispersive device (dirty bomb) or a crude nuclear bomb. CBP uses radiation portal monitor (RPMs) at nearly all land border crossings and seaports to detect radiation in trucks and cargo. DHS recently canceled acquisition of advanced spectroscopic portal monitor (ASPs), which was originally envisioned as costing from $2 billion to $3 billion. This report examines (1) the results of ASP testing conducted in 2009 and 2010 that led to DHSäó»s decision to cancel the ASP program; and (2) the benefits of lessons learned reviews and how DHS captures any lessons learned when programs are canceled. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
