Imagery Analysis of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Nuclear Weapons Related Facilities (Nuclear)
The aim of this two-week course is to provide theoretical and practical instruction on the use of satellite imagery to analyse facilities involved in the civil Nuclear Fuel Cycle (NFC) and in the development and deployment of nuclear weapons. Locations used on this course are orientated around facilities that are involved in nuclear related activities or suspected of being involved in the production of nuclear weapon related materials and testing.
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the civil NFC;
- Understand the aspects of the NFC that enables the development of nuclear weapons;
- Use imagery to analyse facilities related to the civil NFC;
- Use imagery to analyse nuclear weapons related facilities;
- Use imagery to analyse facilities related to nuclear forces.
Course prerequisites for attendees:
- Attendees must be proficient in the English language.
- Attendees must have an EU SECRET security clearance.
