Title: The energy intelligence information system

Abstract

The safety and security of foreign nuclear facilities is an important topic for intelligence services. This has been made more important by the breakup of the Former Soviet Union. The major requirement of intelligence analysts is rapid information retrieval after the report of an incident at a foreign facility. Sandia National Laboratories is developing a GIS-based Energy Intelligence Information System (EIIS) to help analysts at The Office of Energy Intelligence of the Department of Energy formulate a response to a nuclear incident. The Vital Issues process was used to determine which information might be the most important to collect. Joint Applications Design and prototyping sessions were held to establish EIIS requirements and refine the user interface. EIIS was built to access any point on the globe or to move directly to a site, facility, or city. The EIIS version 1.0 concentrates on commercial reactors, version 2.0 will include other nuclear fuel cycle sites and release 3.0 will include waste and disposal information. The system runs on a SUN workstation using ARC/INFO{trademark} and Informix as the RDBMS. The map system relies upon the Digital Chart of the World from the Defense Mapping Agency.
