Large size freight cargo containers are the most vulnerable items from nuclear security points of view because of their large volume and weight of cargo inside for hiding heavily shielded objects. For strengthening nuclear security, secure detection of NMs in heavily shielded objects, and safe handling (dismantlement) of detected (suspicious) objects, are essential. These require secure detection of NMs, inspection of detailed interior structures of detected objects, rough characterization of NMs (for nuclear bomb or RDD etc.) and confirmation of existence of explosives etc. By using information obtained by these inspections, safe dismantlement of objects is possible. In this paper, we propose a combination of X-ray scanning system with NRF-based NDD system using monochromatic -ray beam for a secure detection and interior inspections. We also we propose active neutron NDA system using a DT source for interior inspection of NM part.

Large size freight cargo containers are the most volunurable items from nuclear security points of view because of their large volume and weight of cargo inside for hiding heavily shielded objects. For strengthning nuclear security, secure detection of NMs in heavily shielded objects, and safe handling (dismatlement) of detected / suspicious objects for taking out of NMs, are essential. These require the following things, (1) Introduction of secure detection system of NMs, (2) Inspection of deteiled and interior structures of detected objects, (3) Rough chracterization of NMs (for nuclear bomb or RDD etc.) / Confirmation of existence of explosives etc.. By using information obtained by interior inspections, safe dismantlement of objects and taking NMs out are possible. In this papaer, we propose a combined system of X-ray scanning system with NRF-based NDD system using monochromatic -ray beam not only as a secure detection system of NMs but also interior inspection system (covering (1) and (2)). Also we propose active neutron NDA system using a D-T source for interior inspection of NM part (covering (3)).

We introduce the basic principle of neutron radiography technique, and the brief review of its applications. Most of works in this article have been performed at TNRF, Tokai, Japan. Neutron radiography is a nondestructive testing method, so that this technique is used for not only academic studies but also industrial applications. Keywords: neutron radiography, imaging, TNRF

ISCN of JAEA has conducted (with collaborations with JAEA other centers) the following development programs of advanced NDA technologies since its establishment. (1) Measurement test of the using PNAR-NDA system for Fugen spent fuel assemblies, (2) Basic development of NRF-NDA technologies using LCS -rays, (3) Development of alternative to He neutron detection technology, (4) Development of neutron resonance densitometry. ISCN has just started the following new programs (also with collaborations with JAEA other centers). (5) Demonstration of NRF-non-destructive detection technology for nuclear security using LCS -rays, (6) Development of active neutron NDA techniques using a pulsed neutron (D-T) source, (7) Feasibility study on monitoring of high active liquid waste in tanks inside cell. This paper presents the results of basic technology development programs already done and introduces above new programs.

JAEA-ISCN has been implementing basic development programs of the advanced NDA technologies for nuclear material (NM) since 2011JFY (Japanese Fiscal Year), which are (1) NRF (Nuclear resonance fluorescence) NDA technology using laser Compton scattered (LCS) -rays (intense mono-energetic -rays), (2) Alternative to He neutron detection technology using ZnS/BO ceramic scintillator, and (3) NRD (Neutron resonance densitometry) using NRTA (Neutron resonance transmission analysis) and NRCA (Neutron resonance capture analysis). These programs are going to be finished in 2014JFY and have demonstration tests in February - March 2015.

JAEA has been implementing development programs of basic technologies of the following advanced NDA (non-destructive assay) of nuclear material (NM) for nuclear safeguards and security. (1) Alternative to He neutron detection using ZnS/BO ceramic scintillator, (2) NRD (neutron resonance densitometry) using NRTA (neutron resonance transmission analysis) and NRCA (neutron resonance capture analysis), (3) NRF (nuclear resonance fluorescence)-NDA using laser Compton scattered (LCS) -rays (intense mono-energetic -rays). The development program (1) is for NDA systems that use ZnS/BO ceramic scintillator as alternative neutron detector to He for coming shortage of its supply. The program (2) is for a NDA system of isotopic composition measurement (non-destructive mass spectroscopy) in targets such as particle-like melted fuel debris using NRTA and NRCA. The program (3) is for NDA systems using a specific NRF reaction of certain Pu/U isotope caused by mono-energetic LCS -ray with energy tuned to the specific excited state of the isotope. This paper introduces above three programs.

Neutron diffraction imaging for a SUS430 plate embedded in a copper block sample has been tested at the high-intensity total diffractometer NOVA in J-PARC, the High-Resolution Powder Diffractometer HRPD and the diffractometer for Residual Stress Analysis RESA in JRR-3. The results are also compared with that measured at the Thermal Neutron Radiography Facility TNRF in JRR-3.

In this study, we conducted basic research to evaluate the long-term adhesion characteristics of post-installed anchors by using the neutron beam from JRR-3 in the future. The experiments were carried out TNRF and RESA in JRR-3. In the cross-sectional CT image near the center of the concrete, multiple holes artificially created in the concrete inside the iron can with an inner diameter of about 60 mm were clearly photographed. As a result of comparing the dimensions with the actual measurement and the image, it was confirmed that the values were almost the same, and the tip of the hole could be observed with high accuracy.
