​​​Advanced Safeguards
Idaho National Laboratory (INL) has been a leader in the nuclear field for more than 60 years. In fact, we've safely designed, built, and operated 52 different and unique reactors. Our engineers have created detection technology and safeguards and security recommendations for worldwide application. Now, we're working toward a future where nuclear facilities will be designed to be more efficient and effective at safeguards and protection.


Today, INL researchers are leading a new safeguards effort that applies the simultaneous action of technology, policies, and accountability procedures to intrinsically protect nuclear facilities.
