Abstract
WORLDWIDE MONITORING OF NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION REQUIRES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SUITABLE SYSTEM WITH APPROPRIATE SENSORS TO MONITOR THE NUCLEAR PROCESSES AND EVENTS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD. IN THIS PHASE I STUDY WE WILL IDENTIFY THE SUITE OF SENSORS TO MONITOR THE NUCLEAR PROGRAMS IN COUNTRIES IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD. INITIALLY THE INDIAN SUBCONTINENT WILL BE SELECTED FOR MONITORING THE NUCLEAR ACTIVITIES. BOTH INDIAN AND PAKISTANI NUCLEAR PROGRAMS WILL BE STUDIES TO IDENTIFY THE SUITABLE RADIONUCLIDES FOR MONITORING. SUBSEQUENTLY, A MONITORING SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED WITH SUITABLE SENSORS TO HAVE HIGH SENSITIVITY FOR DETECTION OF RADIONUCLIDES AND CAN BE MANUFACTURED AT A REASONABLE COST. THE SYSTEM WILL BE SUITABLE FOR MONITORING THE NUCLEAR ACTIVITIES IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD WITH ONLY MINOR MODIFICATIONS. THE WORK WILL BE CARRIED OUT IN COLLABORATION WITH INDIAN ATOMIC ENERGY. THE ACTUAL SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT WILL BE CARRIED OUT IN PHASE II OF THE PROGRAM. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS: IMPROVED ABILITY TO MONITOR GLOBAL NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION.
