3D Model of Syria’s Hakasa Spinning Company

November 8, 2011

Media reports over the last couple weeks indicated that IAEA inspectors had raised some concerns about satellite images of a complex in northwest Syria that was possibly related to the country’s suspected nuclear program and might have links to the AQ Khan network and to Libya’s defunct nuclear weapons program. These allegation and the images they were based on were analyzed at length by numerous experts, including Dr. Jeffrey Lewis who wrote extensively on the issue for Arms Control Wonk (see links below). Additionally, CNS research assistant Tamara Patton created a 3D model of the site.

For full details of the debate regarding the Hasaka facility see listed posts by Dr. Lewis:
