In the ten years since the Proliferation Security Initiative PSI was proposed the United States has taken steps to expand the network of states involved, improve interdiction laws, and share procedures with involved states. A majority of this effort has been focused on maritime interdiction since most of the worlds trade travels by ship. As the PSI participant states continue to improve their maritime capabilities for detecting, tracking, and interdicting chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear CBRN materials and weapons of mass destruction WMD devices and adjust their maritime laws, state and non-state actors involved in proliferating these items will seek alternative transport modes.
