3rd Technical Meeting on Radiation Detection Instruments for Nuclear Security
July 13 - July 17
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will organize the
In accordance with the Nuclear Security Plan 2018-2021, the Member States have encouraged the IAEA to keep pace with evolving challenges and threats to nuclear security using scientific and technological innovations. Because of this request, the IAEA has organized a series of technical meetings to enable Member States to share their experiences related to the use of radiation detection equipment for Nuclear Security purposes.
The 2nd TM reaffirmed the importance of holding these technical meetings on a biennual basis in order to continue sharing experiences, challenges, and advancements related to radiation detection equipment for Nuclear Security.
For this reason IAEA organizes the 3rd Technical Meeting.
In fact, the 3rd TM will continue the series with an interactive format for the sharing of best practices and lessons learned, the latest on equipment developments and specifications, and discussions of relevant “hot topics” and evolving threats and technologies.
The objective of the meeting is to bring together experts in, and users of, radiation detection instruments with the manufacturers of such equipment in order to identify:
- What emerging threats exist and the relevant needed detection technologies;
- What needs exist for improvements to the underlying technology; and
- What technical specifications are needed and desired for the detection of nuclear and other radioactive material out of regulatory control.
The meeting will cover the following topics:
- National and international experiences with the detection of nuclear and other radioactive material out of regulatory control or during the response to nuclear security events;
- Evolving threats and technologies;
- Current status and capabilities of radiation detection instruments;
- Maintenance, repair, calibration and testing;
- R&D on radiation detection instruments – improving performance and sustainability;
- Active detection systems;
- Integration of active and passive systems;
- Data analytics and artificial intelligence;
- Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) – drones;
- Complex spectra analysis;
- Technical and functional specifications for equipment (including revision of NSS 1);
- Applications of detection technology in safety-security interface including trade facilitation;
- Networking of radiation detectors; and
- Improving user interface and operability.
CAEN SyS at 3rd Technical Meeting on Radiation Detection Instruments for Nuclear Security
CAEN SyS attended for the first time to the 2nd technical meeting on radiation detection instruments for nuclear security.
At that time we showed for the first time to the IAEA community the earliest version of the SNIPER-GN.
