The LBNL Table of Isotopes website provides primary nuclear information to >150,000 different users annually. We have developed the covert technology to identify users by IP address and country to determine the kinds of nuclear information they are retrieving. We propose to develop pattern recognition software to provide an early warning system to identify Unusual nuclear activity by country or region Specific nuclear/radioactive material interests We have monitored nuclear information for over two years and provide this information to the FBI and LLNL. Intelligence is gleaned from the website log files. This proposal would expand our reporting capabilities.
