Review of Capabilities for Detection, Verification, and Monitoring of Nuclear Weapons and Fissile Material


Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will review U.S. capabilities for detection, verification, and monitoring of nuclear weapons and fissile material and make recommendations for improving these capabilities.
Specifically, the review will assess and evaluate: 
1. the current national research enterprise for detection, verification, and monitoring of nuclear weapons and fissile material
2. the integration of roles, responsibilities, and planning for such detection, verification, and monitoring within the Federal Government.
And identify opportunities: 
3. to leverage the national research enterprise to further prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons and fissile material, including with respect to policy, research and development, and testing and evaluation
4. for international engagement for building cooperation and transparency, including bilateral and multilateral efforts, to improve inspections, detection, and monitoring of nuclear weapons and fissile material, and to create incentives for such cooperation and transparency 
5. for new or expanded research and development efforts to improve detection and monitoring of, and in-field inspection and analysis capabilities with respect to, nuclear weapons and fissile materials
6. for improved coordination between departments and agencies of the Federal Government and the military departments, national laboratories, commercial industry, and academia. 
7. for leveraging commercial capabilities.

The committee will provide a peer-reviewed assessment containing findings and recommendations, a restricted, peer-reviewed assessment containing findings and recommendations, and a public summary of the restricted report.

Description :   

In accordance with Section 15(b)(3) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), the request that the data-gathering session scheduled on August 27, 2020, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, EDT, in connection with the meeting of the Committee on the Review of Capabilities for Detection, Verification, and Monitoring of Nuclear Weapons and Fissile Material Capabilities, is approved.  The data gathering session is scheduled to take place virtually via WebEx Fed Ramp (NNSA).

The determination in the preceding paragraph is based on: (1) the e-mail from Benjamin Rusek, Senior Program Officer, CISAC, dated August 20, 2020; and (2) the letter dated August 18, 2020 from David LaGraffe, Associate Assistant Deputy Administrator, Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation R&D, NNSA, which confirms that presentations and discussions during the referenced data gathering session will expose committee members to information about monitoring and detection of nuclear proliferation, which is exempt from public release under Exemption 3 of FOIA, 5 USC 552(b)(3) (Export Controlled Information).  

In accordance with the Checklist for Responsible Staff Officers for Compliance with Section 15 of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, you should post the following note at the end of the “Agenda” field in NAPAR:
