NNSA Taps Univ. of Michigan-Led Consortium For Nuclear Arms Control R&D Project Grant

Nuclear explosionA consortium led by the University of Michigan has secured a potential $25 million federal grant to research and develop tools for monitoring international nonproliferation commitments.

The National Nuclear Security Administration selected the consortium to explore technologies for helping the U.S. verify if nations are in compliance with nonproliferation obligations under international treaties, NNSA said Monday.

NNSA says the five-year R&D project also includes work on geophysical models intended to test and detect underground detonation of nuclear weapons.

The University of Michigan’s teammates include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Hawaii, Yale University, the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and the Sandia National Laboratories.
