The station is to be created by the Malaysian Institute of Nuclear Technology (MINT) Research and is estimated to cost about $400,000, according to the Star. The station will be used to detect the presence of radioactive particles in the air, and if activities are detected, to transmit information to the CTBT Organization in Vienna, said MINT Director General Ahmad Sobri Hashim (Kuala Lumpur Star, Dec. 10).
