ABSTRACT
The article reveals that the U.S. nuclear detection architecture will put more emphasis on detecting radiological and nuclear threats inside the country, according to Warren Stern of the U.S. Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). He stresses the need to address the cost and size of a proliferated use of radiation detectors, as well as improving their accuracy. He cites New York City's Secure the Cities program as an example of the use of radiation detection systems in the local level. It also cites DNDO pilot projects for interior enforcement.
