Additive Manufacturing, Nonproliferation, and an Internet of Nuclear Things Salon

Invitation Only

As the digital nature of additive manufacturing begins to stress traditional nodes in the nuclear supply chain, the way in which technology, knowledge, and skills are transferred around the world is beginning to shift. As such, the spread of proliferation-sensitive information on digital files threatens to evade detection and thwart export controls. Networks built into commercial systems provide the basis to create an Internet of Nuclear Things, with the ability to maintain custody of sensitive design information and harness access points throughout a supply chain to monitor proliferation threats. This dinner will consider this topic with perspectives from industry, scholars, and policymakers.
