Thrust Area 5 focuses on basic research for verification of treaties, as well as assuring safeguards, storage and accounting for inventories, and
general approaches in support of non-proliferation efforts. The research advances capabilities for safe and verifiable control of materials, systems,
and facilities that underpin greater confidence for entering, exiting, or sustaining multinational WMD-related agreements with emphasis on providing for
future needs. This research will also help to provide transparency and assurance in handling of weapons and related materiel. The following capabilities
Awareness and Characterization: Monitoring and Verification
Oversight and Control: Securing Weapons, Installations, & Materials
