Title: Verification and Validation of Optimization of Replacement Portal Monitoring Replay Tools

Abstract

The Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) are both developing optimization software to fulfill the objective of Phase III of the Replacement Portal Monitoring (RPM) Program for the Department of Homeland Security. The objective of the Phase III of the RPM Program is to conduct an evaluation of three RPM systems designed to enhance mission effectiveness, gain operational efficiencies, and to address emerging mission needs against the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD ) nuclear threat basis and special nuclear material (SNM) used in performance testing. As such this task involves the use of global optimization algorithms.
