19 May 2021 Webinar on Overview of Approaches for Management of Nuisance Alarms from Radiation Portal Monitors

The objective of the webinar is to provide an overview of techniques used for managing nuisance alarms from Radiation Portal Monitors (RPMs). Additionally, the webinar will introduce opportunities for States to further enhance their own approaches for nuisance alarms and address current and planned safety and security guidance.

26 & 27 January 2021 Webinar on Overview of Passive & Active Detection Technologies for Detection of CBRNE and Other Contraband

The objective of the webinar is to provide an overview of passive and active detection technologies used for detection of CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear and explosive materials) and other contraband.  Additionally, the webinar will solicit ideas and issues for further discussion at the larger TM planned on the topic for Q3 2021.

30 September 2020 Webinar on Integrating Nuclear Security Systems and Measures to Secure Major Urban Areas and Transportation Hubs

The objective of this webinar is to raise awareness and provide models for law enforcement and national security officials to integrate nuclear security systems and measures into existing security architecture in the State’s interior, with particular focus on major urban areas and transportation hubs.

22 October 2020 Introduction on Nuclear Security Detection Architecture

This Webinar will introduce NSDA concepts so that participants will understand the scope and framework of a national-level NSDA and the role of nuclear security detection in the context of security measures for nuclear and other radioactive MORC. Experiences in the implementation of the NSDA will be shared by Members States.

29 July 2020 Overview of operation and maintenance of handheld equipment used in nuclear security detection architecture

IAEA Nuclear Security Series Implementing Guide (NSS 21) on Nuclear Security Systems and Measures for the Detection of Nuclear and Other Radioactive Material out of Regulatory Control (MORC) was published in 2013. This guidance recommend criminal or unauthorized acts involving MORC may be detected by technical and/or by other means of  detection. Usually, passive and active detection technologies are being used, but both have fundamentally different approaches. Passive detection instruments directly measure normal emissions of radiation from nuclear or other radioactive material, while active detection systems aim to detect nuclear or other radioactive material indirectly by detecting something else that may indicate the its presence. Compared to active detection instruments, passive detection instruments are generally less expensive, and present no additional hazard to personnel. Owing to their comparatively low costs and distinct capability, passive handheld detection instruments are common tools for the detection of MORC. Passive handheld detection instruments are available in several types to meet a wide array of operational needs. The purpose of the Webinar is to raise awareness with the type of passive handheld detection instruments that may be used in the detection of MORC.

3 February 2021 IAEA Webinar on Nuclear Security Detection Architecture in Latin America

The Nuclear Security Detection Architecture (NSDA) in Latin America project is implementing a series of workshops to provide targeted Member States the capacity to development, design, and implement a risk-information national NSDA. The target Member States include: Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
