SLAFKA Prototype

DLT for Nuclear Material Accountancy and Control
Project Info

In 2020, the Stimson Center developed “SLAFKA,” a first-of-its-kind prototype that uses distributed ledger technology for tracking nuclear material at the national level. Because many of the challenges in nuclear material accounting are fundamentally problems of data reconciliation, matching and data integrity, the prototype demonstrated how DLT could be used to validate data trustworthiness and increase efficiencies in reporting and information sharing. The tool was developed with Finland’s Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia.
