AN ADVANCED NDA WORKSTATION FOR INTEGRATED SAFEGUARDS
In this paper the design and development of an advanced NDA workstation are described, which fits into an integrated data evaluation scheme for safeguards. This kind of instrument must be sort of an intelligent assistant to the inspection procedure, be able to generate as correct as possible measurements, guide the inspector throughout the procedure, and report descriptive data to the data evaluation system. The problem of improving the quality of the measurement is tackled using a simple expert system; which should convey in the instrument some of the physicist's knowledge. The hardware and software resources included in the design to reach the intended goal are also described. A prototype of the machine has been built, and a beta test application software for Plutonium Isotopic Composition will be soon released to the international safeguards authorities.
