support. Seismic, hydroacoustic, infrasonic, and radionuclide
technologies are all utilized in the effort to improve the
capability for monitoring the globe for nuclear explosions.

The Program staff includes scientists, software engineers, and
experts in information systems. Their capabilities, which range
from data collection, analysis, and distribution to basic
research and development, contribute to the various projects of
the Program.

The Research and Development Support Services (RDSS) project is
focused on improving verification monitoring capability by
supporting the DTRA and SMDC R&D community, providing
testing at appropriate scales for evaluating current and future
capability, and focusing attention on the important technical
