Nuclear Safeguards and Security

ORNL creates focused tools and provides detailed analysis and solutions on difficult emerging radiological questions for DOE, DoD, DHS, intelligence agencies, and the national security community using state-of-the-art modeling and simulations. Tools for nuclear security area are generally made available within select communities at the discretion of sponsoring agencies. These tools and analyses span a wide variety of applications, including the following:

• Material production and detection
• Nuclear chemical engineering
• Nuclear fuel safeguards modeling
• Nuclear forensics
• Nuclear weapon effects and fallout
• Radiation detection modeling
• Radiation transport applications
• Detector response modeling
• Statistical data sampling analysis
• Inverse analysis and modeling
