Real World Missions

ORNL, Y-12, and ORAU lead our consortium’s support to real mission activi­ties of the US Government. This includes providing experts for IAEA inspections, mounting complex materials recovery operations, providing state-of-the-art analysis, serving as technical experts to diplomatic engagements, and supporting law enforce­ment investigations into nuclear smuggling or nu­clear terrorism. These activities also render unique insights for our R&D and educational approaches, assuring these activities remain highly relevant to the needs of the global nuclear security commu­nity.
