Technology alone will not prevent an act of nuclear terrorism, and success in the nuclear security mission requires more than the deployment of new technologies and equipment. It also requires the integration of programs, organizations, training, exercises and operational support across many layers of jurisdiction, including international, federal, state, local, tribal and territorial.

The transit and border layer (Trans-Border) is composed of transit to the U.S. from a foreign port of departure or non-port of departure, as well as passing through the U.S. border prior to entering the U.S. interior. This represents the last opportunity to detect radiological or nuclear materials prior to their arrival onto U.S. territory, and initiatives in this layer emphasize maritime domain awareness related to preventive radiological/nuclear detection.
