BURLINGAME, Calif., July 18 (UPI) -- A new method to help secure nuclear facilities will be discussed next week in a webinar by Britain's National Nuclear Laboratory and ARES Security Corp.
The focus of the discussion to be held Tuesday is AVERT, a 3D modeling and simulation software developed by ARES, a company headquartered in the United States. AVERT underwent an independent evaluation by the National Nuclear Laboratory.
"AVERT is a step change in the approach to security decision making, and played a valuable role in assessing options for enhancing security at one of NNL's most important facilities," says Jeremy Davison, head of security for the National Nuclear Laboratory.
Results of that evaluation will be presented and discussed in the webinar – titled "Utilizing Modeling and Simulation to Optimize Nuclear Security System Design" – by representatives of NNL's security and technical teams.
To participate in the presentation, interested parties can register at ARES' website.
Additional details about the evaluation were not immediately available.
