Argonne uses its materials and engineering expertise to develop, test, and deploy sensors and materials to detect nuclear and radiological materials, chemical and biological agents and explosives. Our goal is to develop critical security technologies to prevent and manage events with potential for mass destruction—thereby protecting the citizens of this country as well as national interests. We support national programs in border, cargo, and transportation security, as well as chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear incident mitigation and management.
