Abstract:

The Next Generation Safeguards Initiative spent fuel nondestructive assay project is developing new safeguards technologies foruse in verification of bulk plutonium content in spent nuclear fuel assemblies. In this paper, we discuss the spent fuel safeguards project in general and an external review process that was used to inform down selection among the fourteen different techniques studied. The review committee process was an excellent way of collecting expert analysis of the techniques and to provide unbiased input to project management decisions. The committee's overall impression was that the work performed by the researchers on this effort was impressive in both depth and breadth and will have a significant impact on safeguards technology development.
