‘Galaxy Serpent’ Table-Top Exercise

This was a virtual, web-based international table-top exercise, where teams of scientists from various countries used provided public domain spent nuclear fuel compositions to formulate their own model national nuclear forensics library (NNFL), and determined if hypothetically seized spent nuclear fuel is or is not consistent with their national nuclear forensics library. This exercise aimed to promote best practices through providing a vehicle for participants to gather key technical expertise to create a NNFL using guidelines in International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) documents and to illustrate the potential probative benefits offered by creating such a library.
