ASNO Technical Seminars

During the reporting period, ASNO continued for the second year its successful series of technical seminars, covering basic technologies, threats and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Originally conceived to meet ASNOs own need for greater multi-skilling of its staff and as a way of better managing its corporate knowledge, these seminars have immediately appealed to officials working on WMD non-proliferation in several governmental agencies, including Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Department of Health, Customs, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Department of Industry, Science and Resources and the Australian intelligence community. ASNO staff members made all the presentations, the bulk of which were related to the issues of nuclear non-proliferation and the security of fissile material. ASNO has planned an extensive program for the third year of the series in which it expects to cover again topical issues related to nuclear non-proliferation, CWC and CTBT.
