Abstract

During the Second Preparatory Committee for the 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) the integrated approach to safety, security and safeguards was actively discussed. The idea was aimed at improving the efficiency of the cooperation among safety, security and safeguards (3S) elements, which have relatively large number of common points, but at the same time have their proper features. Careful consideration has showed that the sphere of non-destructive testing (NDT) is most appropriate one to start 3S synergy implementation. NDT methods and devices are widely applied in each S-element and could quite often be retargeted. Therefore, in this paper we describe our experiments in using data, which can be gathered during typical ultrasonic inspection of Dry intermediate storage cask seam weld for safety reasons. We process the data and use it for security and safeguard purposes as information containing unique intrinsic fingerprints of the cask's material.
