Recent terrorist activity, including the emerging threat of Radiological Dispersal Devices (RDD), renewed nuclear threats from foreign nations, and the re-emergence of nuclear power with its special requirements for security throughout the nuclear fuel cycle, require the development of new technical tools, emergency response procedures, and medical treatments within the Departments of Defense (DOD) and Homeland Security (DHS) sectors. The symposium will bring together planning and product development professionals from:
• Department of Defense
• Civilian government
• Radiological device user community
• Nuclear power industry
• Detection, modeling, protection, and health physics communities
The Symposium will focus on emerging threats and state-of-the art tools, with the objective of adapting the latest technology to protecting the lives of our warfighters, first responders, and the general public as well as containing and cleaning up after a major nuclear or radiological event.
