SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The purpose of the Rad/Nuc Challenge was to increase proficiency, improve Concepts of Operations, and promote proper use of radiological and nuclear detection equipment by state and local agencies in support of the domestic radiological and nuclear detection mission to prevent the illicit use and/or movement of radioactive materials within the United States. By integrating into existing competitive exercises like Urban Shield, DNDO will provide a similar competitive exercise format that will continue to promote the radiological and nuclear detection mission.

DNDO will provide announcements on opportunities to participate in competitive radiological and nuclear detection exercises to a community distribution list.

To be added to the email distribution list for radiological and nuclear detection competitive event announcements, or for additional information, please contact Timothy Smith, DHS, DNDO, by email at radnucchallenge@hq.dhs.gov.
