On Friday, January 26, Hudson Institute hosted a discussion on the work of the Nuclear Verification Capabilities Independent Task Force of the Federation of American Scientists (FAS). Task Force members discussed their most recent report, Nuclear Monitoring and Verification in the Digital Age.
Major themes addressed in this report include: the increasing availability of inexpensive and commercially available imagery; widescale electronic distribution of trade data; and the abundance of new media channels available for rapid distribution of updated information and analysis, all with varying degrees of quality and correctness.
Hudson Senior Fellow Richard Weitz moderated the discussion. Copies of the task force report will be available.
Hudson Institute would like to thank the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for supporting our nuclear nonproliferation and security dialogues. Follow our MacArthur Foundation work at the link here.
This event will be live streamed on Hudson’s homepage.
