Reflections from three female inspectors on their role in the Integrated Field Exercise, IFE14, held 3 November to 9 December 2014, in Jordan.
It was the largest simulation of an on-site inspection (OSI) ever conducted. Over 200 participants took part and over 150 tonnes of equipment was shipped halfway around the world to help train them.
This huge endeavour will enable the CTBTO to prepare for the work it may have to undertake when the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) comes into force. An OSI is the final verification measure, and can occur when one Member State believes another has detonated a nuclear device. See more on the IFE14 exercise here: http://www.ctbto.org/specia...
