Stemming from the NATO Advanced Research Workshop, this book asserts that no single institution or country possesses all the resources to effectively address radiological and nuclear threats. Moreover, the book asserts that fundamental scientific challenges must be overcome to achieve new and improved technologies. In response, the book sets forth research strategies that advance the ability to counter nuclear and radiological threats.
Need to prevent, detect and respond to nuclear/radiological threats
Connections are identified between technology needs and the underlying science and technology
Research strategies are established that will advance the ability to counter nuclear/radiological threats
