Abstract : This report presents the results of the requirements analysis and system architecture, system fabrication, and Proof-of-Principle demonstration and evaluation of the Innovative Treaty Sensor Integration Project (ITSIP) for the Defense Nuclear Agency. ITSIP's objective was to demonstrate the utility of advanced information technology, sensor integration, and artificial intelligence to arms control treaty monitoring and verification scenarios. A START Treaty portal monitoring scenario was selected to demonstrate the system's capabilities. The proof-of-principle demonstrated clearly the utility of sensor integration and artificial intelligence within this well-known treaty environment. The research concluded that the ITSIP concept would be applicable to a variety of treaties. This ITSIP research produced a rapidly configurable, portable, real-time, user-friendly, computer driven video display providing treaty inspectors with a computer-based assessment of the probability of a treaty violation. ITSIP was designed to effectively improve a treaty monitors capability to make important decisions during the conduct of inspections and improve monitor effectiveness by having treaty-related data readily available for assessment.
