Report of the International Workshop on Technology Opportunities for Increasing the Proliferation Resistance of Global Civilian Nuclear Power Systems (TOPS)   [open pdf - 215KB]

The Office of Nuclear Energy, Science, and Technology (NE) has established a task force under the Nuclear Energy Research Advisory Committee (NERAC) to identify near- and long-term technical opportunities to further increase the proliferation resistance of global nuclear power systems (TOPS) and to recommend specific research areas. The TOPS Task Force (Appendix A) was asked to call upon experts and hold, as needed, a series of workshops to analyze technologies and research issues. Accordingly, a TOPS International Workshop was held on March 29-30, 2000 in Washington, D.C. to help identify the: Key factors or attributes to evaluate technology R&D opportunities, most important opportunities for relevant near- and long-term research, and areas where international collaboration can be most productive. This report contains the results of that workshop.
