SCIENCE DAILY (UNITED STATES)-- The Borders Grand Challenge, funded by a three-year, $6 million laboratory-directed research and development (LDRD) project, focus is to develop simulation-based systems analyses characterizing the security of the United States Border System and the impact of new detection technologies and concepts of operation. The interactive analysis that serves as the hallmark of the program has largely focused on the illegal smuggling of radiological/nuclear material but can also relate to other threats such as explosives or chemical/biological agent attack.
