Geospatial Information and Technologies Supporting Non-proliferation, Arms Control, and Disarmament — •Irmgard Niemeyer and Clemens Listner — International Safeguards Group, IEK-6: Nuclear Waste Management and Reactor Safety, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany
Geospatial information and technologies combined with open-source tools play an important role in international safeguards, non-proliferation, arms control, and disarmament by helping to detect undeclared or clandestine nuclear activities. Recent technological advances in how information is created, disseminated, collected and managed have created promising opportunities for the further expansion of the use of geospatial information and technologies in the safeguards analysis process.
Geospatial information and technologies combined with open-source tools could open up a number of avenues for verifying non-proliferation and arms control agreements in general. Furthermore, open sources provide increasing volumes of relevant data while social media continue to rapidly expand and analysis of these information sources has moved into the mainstream.
The presentation seeks to examine the issues, challenges and opportunities of these expanding information sources and technologies from a non-proliferation, arms control and disarmament perspective.
