  • The basis as well as the objectives of physical security are different from those of international safeguards. But it seems to be reasonable to combine measures which provide advantages to both in terms of the inspectorates resources and non-hindrance of plant concept and operational strategy. Starting with a comparison of objectives, principles and measures, common aspects are defined to investigate exemplarily capability and limits in terms of technical feasibility as well as compliance with national regulations and principles of EURATOM/IAEA-Safeguards from the viewpoint of the designer of an industrial German reprocessing plant.
  • Most physical security functions can be accomplished by a range of alternative features. Careful design can provide comparable levels of security regardless of which option is chosen, albeit with possible differences in cost and efficiency. However, the effectiveness and especially the cost and efficiency of the material control and accounting system may be strongly influenced by the selection of a particular design approach to physical security. In this paper, a series of examples are cited to illustrate the effects that particular physical protection design choices may have. The examples have been chosen from several systems engineering projects at facilities withinmore » the DOE nuclear community. These examples are generalized, and a series of design principles are proposed for integrating physical security with material control and accounting by appropriate selection of alternative features. 2 references, 6 figures.« less
