Technical Challenges to Nuclear Disarmament Verification - A UK perspective — •David Chambers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office, London
This presentation will outline the key issues which bring particular technical challenges to the verification of nuclear disarmament. Since 1998 the UK has been looking to address the technical challenges of verification in nuclear weapons facilities. The presentation will use the UK*s experiences to demonstrate potential ways to approach these challenges, including identifying where new and innovative technological solutions will be required. This will include lessons learned through the UKs bilateral projects with both the USA and Norway, and show the equal importance of roles for those that possess nuclear weapons and those that do not. Finally the most recent initiatives will be considered, the US led International Partnership on Disarmament Verification and the four nation Quad initiative. These multinational approaches present new opportunities and demonstrate how future initiatives can make effective and efficient use of resources to address the challenges remaining.
