Abstract:

The Proliferation Path Assessment and Targeting System PPATS provides a common framework for conducting counterproliferation analysis. PPATS displays a network of acquisition pathways for nuclear, chemical and biological NBC weapons of mass destruction WMD. The network display can be expanded to reveal individual process steps involving activities, equipment and materials. The PPATS software allows its users to link intelligence to the process steps, ascertain evidence of activity at certain steps and associate active steps installationsfacilities. It allows analysts to determine critical paths based on findings of activity underway and assess the impact of potential options imposed against the proliferant country or actor. This report provides a general description of the prototype of software development effort and its status within the counterproliferation community.
