The Department of Safeguards (SG) is the organizational hub for the implementation of IAEA safeguards. The IAEA implements nuclear verification activities for some 180 States in accordance with their safeguards agreements. The safeguards activities are undertaken within a dynamic and technically challenging environment including advanced nuclear fuel cycle facilities and complemented by the political diversity of the countries.
The Department of Safeguards consists of six Divisions: three Operations Divisions: A, B and C, for the implementation of verification activities around the world; three Technical Divisions: Division of Concepts and Planning, Division of Information Management, and Division of Technical and Scientific Services; as well as three Offices: the Office for Verification in Iran, the Office of Safeguards Analytical Services and the Office of Information and Communication Services.
The Division of Technical and Scientific Services (SGTS) is the departmental branch for nuclear and other measurement systems applied in verification activities, containment and surveillance techniques and all verification logistics. Within the Department of Safeguards, the Division of Technical Support is responsible for the development and implementation of the Department’s equipment systems.
The Section for Unattended Systems (TUS) is responsible for the full development, assembly, testing, implementation and maintenance cycle of all measurement and surveillance systems to be permanently installed and operating in unattended mode at nuclear facilities worldwide. The Section is comprised of two specialized teams (technical units): Surveillance and Unattended Monitoring Systems.
As a team member reporting to the Section Head, the TUS Project Engineer coordinates and supports the field implementation of unattended instruments by ensuring that all equipment installation, upgrade and/or maintenance tasks are completed, commissioned, and integrated in a timely manner. He/she supports the specialized technical teams in the section to establish and maintain required processes, procedures, and documentation consistent with best practices for Systems Engineering and Project Management.
The Project Engineer is: (1) a technical specialist and systems engineer, overseeing all technical aspects of required system installations including the evaluation of technical requirements; (2) an advisor and liaison, initiating and supporting inter- and intra-divisional coordination of best practices; and, (3) a project coordinator, coordinating all aspects of field implementation of unattended instruments including initiating and implementing common standards.
