Concerns have grown that terrorists could use radioactive materials and sealed sources (materials sealed in a capsule) to build a żdirty bombż -- a device using conventional explosives to disperse radioactive material. In 2003, it was found that there were weaknesses in the NRC radioactive materials licensing process and recommend. were made for improvement. This report assesses: (1) the progress NRC has made in implementing the recommend.; (2) other steps NRC has taken to improve its ability to track radioactive materials; (3) Customs and Border Protectionżs (CBP) ability to detect radioac

This study presents a materials research agenda for the commercial aircraft and automotive industries for the next two decades. Case studies from each of the industries are used as a basis for discussion within the report: the 50-mpg, 5-passenger sedan for the automobile industry and the high-speed civil transport for the aircraft industry. The conclusions and recommendations identify the general materials drivers for the industries over the next 10 to 20 years and the materials research required for each field.
