Brookhaven Lecture

"424th Brookhaven Lecture: 'Radiological Threat Reduction: Dealing With Dirty Bombs'"

Presented by Stephen Musolino, Nonproliferation & National Security Department

Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

BNL has been involved in projects to reduce the threat of terrorist attacks involving radioactive materials and to mitigate the consequences should one occur. This talk will review three such projects. One program evaluates the security of industrial sources, such as those used in medicine and industry, and funds additional security measures to detect unauthorized access, delay removal of those sources, and initiate a response by local security forces. The second project is work with Interpol, training front-line police officers of countries along traditional smuggling routes on how to use radiation detectors. The last project to be discussed will be the BNL and SNL-developed guidance that first responders, such as police, fire or EMS, can use within the first 48 hours after the detonation of a radiological device.

Hosted by: Fulvia Pilat and Brant Johnson
