Technical Meeting on Network and Communication Systems for Radiation Detection Equipment Used for Nuclear Security

12 – 14 Apr 2023
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT2206112


The implementation of effective nuclear security regimes (protection, detection, and response) often require the secure, reliable, and timely communication of radiation detection data. This data can then be used to exercise command and control over the data received from the field, and through analysis of the data transform it into actionable information. To support the implementation of secure and sustainable networks and communication systems, the Member States need information on system design, availability, and best practices. The IAEA has developed the Mobile Integrated Nuclear Security Network (M-INSN) to support a wide range of radiation detection operations in unconstrained environments such as major public events (MPEs) or wide area searches.


The objective of the technical meeting is to develop an understanding of the operational, security, and policy/legal requirements and needs regarding networks and communication systems used for nuclear security and involving radiation detection systems. Specifically to be addressed in the meeting is the IAEA's Mobile-Integrated Nuclear Security Network (M-INSN) - a secure network and communication system developed by the IAEA for Member State use. The implementation of effective nuclear security regimes requires secure, reliable, and need based systems such as M-INSN. Member States need guidance, lessons learned and best practices on the design, specifications, testing, sustainment, and use of network and communication systems such as M-INSN.


The topics covered in the Technical Meeting will include but are not limited to:

  • Network Availability and Constraints in Operations
  • Advanced Wireless Capabilities and Radiation Detection
  • Data Transmission and Needs
  • Implications on Real-Time Analysis Capabilities
  • Computer & Network Security
  • IT Support & Needs
  • Procedures, Policies & Standards for Network and Communications

Participation and Registration

All persons wishing to participate in the event have to be designated by an IAEA Member State or should be members of organizations that have been invited to attend.
In order to be designated by an IAEA Member State, participants are requested to send the Participation Form (Form A) to their competent national authority (e.g. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Permanent Mission to the IAEA or National Atomic Energy Authority) for onward transmission to the IAEA by 27 January 2023. Participants who are members of an organization invited to attend are requested to send the Participation Form (Form A) through their organization to the IAEA by above deadline.
Selected participants will be informed in due course on the procedures to be followed with regard to administrative and financial matters.
Participants are hereby informed that the personal data they submit will be processed in line with the Agency’s Personal Data and Privacy Policy and is collected solely for the purpose(s) of reviewing and assessing the application and to complete logistical arrangements where required. The IAEA may also use the contact details of Applicants to inform them of the IAEA’s scientific and technical publications, or the latest employment opportunities and current open vacancies at the IAEA. These secondary purposes are consistent with the IAEA’s mandate.
