Nuclear weapons have influenced the global balance of power ever since the advent of the nuclear age. However, they do not exist in a technological vacuum. Today, emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, stealth, quantum sensing, or hypersonic missiles intersect with nuclear weapons and might well affect the stability of nuclear deterrence. On the other hand, technology can also offer new ways to verify nuclear arms control agreements or nuclear disarmament. This is why CNTR will conduct technical research to develop new verification approaches in the near future.
