Working in close cooperation with its nuclear security stakeholders, the Department of Homeland Security has developed the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture (GNDA).
The nation’s success in preventing nuclear terrorism is a result of the close collaboration between the Department and its international, federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conducts tests to evaluate the performance of radiological and nuclear detection systems (to include technology components, algorithms and materials), at specialized facilities, laboratories, or operational venues. The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office leads the Department’s efforts to test and evaluate these technologies.
The National Strategy for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) Standards lays out the federal vision and goals to achieve a comprehensive structure for coordination, establishment, and implementation of CBRNE equipment standards by 2020.
The Graduated Rad/Nuc Detector Evaluation and Reporting (GRaDER) Program evaluates commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) Rad/Nuc detection equipment against national standards adopted by the Department of Homeland Security.
