Proliferation Resistance and Physical Protection Workshop
The GIF Proliferation Resistance and Physical Protection Working Group (PRPPWG) has been working with the six GIF reactor systems to develop a sustained and structured interaction between the system designers and PR&PP experts in order to help the designers incorporate Proliferation Resistance and Physical Protection (PR&PP) characteristics in different stages of ongoing design efforts.
The PRPPWG conducted a workshop in April 2017 with representatives from the six GIF systems to plan for the future mutual activities between the reactor systems and the PRPPWG and take further next steps towards achieving this goal. The workshop gave each reactor system the opportunity to discuss updates in their design since the previous workshops held in the 2008-2010 time period. In turn, the PRPPWG presented the current status of the methodology and information on how to incorporate PR&PP into the design process.
As a next step in this activity, the PRPPWG will work with the six design groups to develop a roadmap for future interactions on the implementation of PRPP-by-design for Gen IV systems.
