Doing Business with the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)

Recognizing the risks associated with the potential use of a nuclear weapon within the United States, the Department of Homeland Security has integrated all nuclear detection research, development, testing, evaluation, acquisition, and operational support into a single office: the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). The DNDO will develop a global nuclear detection architecture; conduct research and development; and acquire and support the deployment of domestic nuclear detection systems.
