ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the review made by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) of the cargo advanced automated radiography system (CAARS) program by the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). It examines the events that led to the cancellation of the acquisition phase of program by DNDO. DNDO intends to work on CAARS to allow the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to detect more shielded nuclear material in all vehicles and cargo containers.
