Geophysical Detection of Nuclear Proliferation
Sponsored by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Threat Reduction and Control the Geophysical Detection of Nuclear Proliferation University Affiliated Research Center (GDNP UARC) assists in the oversight and guidance of Department of Defense (DoD) research, development, testing, evaluation and use of scientific and technological capabilities to improve the capability to sense, locate, characterize, and assess the threat potential of global nuclear activities. The core mission of the GDNP UARC is to assist the DoD and the Interagency in achieving dominate capabilities through technical excellence and innovation in early detection and analysis of nuclear proliferation as it applies to geophysical phenomenology.
