Abstract: The innovative aspect of the Advanced Safeguards Measurement, Monitoring and Modelling Laboratory, AS3ML, subject of this paper, is that it aims to complement the classical approach of implementing nuclear safeguards by providing an innovative method to monitor the process of sensitive facilities such as Gas Centrifuge Enrichment and Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing plants and/or deploy innovative / smart sensors and technologies. AS3ML endeavors to enhance the “traditional safeguards measures” by the focus on and analysis of (other) process parameters, that may be used to understand & monitor better the whole plant. Some of new technologies investigated include: Indoor localization (RFID, UWB, Laser positioning), 2D/3D Camera, ID (OCR) of cans, Investigative Inspector, pulse shape generator to simulate Gamma and Neutron detectors The AS3ML is conceived as an R&D location, test bed, demo facility and training centre for innovative safeguards approaches where researchers, inspectors (and operators) can conceive and analyse different approaches (including competing technologies) for safeguarding nuclear facilities. The paper will describe techniques and approaches, not currently used in routine safeguards applications, including some recent return of experience on deploying AS3ML based approaches for a new way of safeguarding a plutonium storage location and an enrichment facility.
