With our collaborative partners we have made valuable contributions in the areas of nuclear education, escalation dynamics research, table top exercises for civilian and military leaders, decision support tools, high-performance materials research, advanced manufacturing of components, conceptual nuclear weapon design, survivability of forces, NC3 research and deterrence policy requirements.
We help to strengthen nuclear security by conducting research in the areas of weapon and material security, proliferation technology R&D, proliferation technology detection and nuclear nonproliferation advice to relevant U.S. agencies. Additional research in the area of nuclear counterterrorism includes detection of special nuclear material, radiological material characterization, rapidly deployable nuclear sensors, hazard modeling research and medical countermeasure research in cases of radiological exposure.
Though the geopolitical environment for diplomacy has been unfavorable recently, arms control remains an essential tool for the U.S. to reduce nuclear risks to itself and its allies and partners. To support our customers and sponsors, NSRI and the University of Nebraska research diplomatic and foreign engagement options in all areas of nuclear arms control, nonproliferation and verification.
