CNS is on the forefront of using open source information and new technical tools to identify and determine the capabilities of proliferation-related activities.  Many of our products are prepared for the NTI website, but many other applications for this work are used to support CNS original research.

The Global Video Library

CNS and NTI are creating a video library of strategic nuclear, chemical, biological, and missile-related facilities around the globe. The videos feature original, professionally produced and meticulously researched 3D models of selected facilities profiled on the NTI website.

CNS regional and technical experts produce these videos by conducting open-source analysis of current and historical satellite imagery, ground imagery, videos, and first-hand accounts of the sites. The models are created using Trimble SketchUp and geo-located using Google Earth.
