    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Federation of American Scientists (FAS) works to provide science-based analysis of and solutions to protect against catastrophic threats to national and international security. Continued use of highly enriched uranium (HEU), a weapons-usable fissile material, raises the risks of diversion into nation states’ weapons programs and acquisition by terrorists groups. While efforts are underway worldwide to minimize the use of HEU in civilian applications, some countries continue to use significant quantities of HEU in the naval sector. This project will assemble an FAS task force to analyze the challenges posed by HEU in the naval sector and seek solutions.
