U.S. Delivers Radiation Monitors to Jordan

The United States delivered 20 radiation detectors to Jordan on Tuesday in accordance with shared efforts to curb the smuggling of radioactive and atomic substances, the Jordan News Agency reported (see GSN, Nov. 5, 2010).

Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Jamal Sharaf said the monitors would be placed at airports and other entry spots to the Middle Eastern country. Some of the sensors are mobile.

The U.S. Energy Department has supplied Jordanian nuclear regulators with electronic gates and provided training to Jordanian border protection personnel on the proper operation and maintenance of radiation monitors (Jordan News Agency/Zawya.com, March 22).
