Indonesia Prepares to Install Radiation Monitors at Bali Airport to Deter Threat of Nuclear Terrorist Attack

The Atomic Energy Supervision Agency (BAPETAN) is planning to install a Pedestrian Radiation Portal Monitor (RPM) at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Such a step is seen as necessary to anticipate possible future terrorism attacks using weapons of mass destruction comprised of deadly nuclear materials.

Martua Sinaga, the deputy for permits and inspections from BAPETAN, attending a executive session on Nuclear Safety in Kuta, said: “For Bali, we will ask that a Pedestrian Radiation Monitor be installed. This is for people carrying bags. So we need to be careful.”

As reported by NusaBali, the RPM can detect radioactivity and nuclear materials concealed on a person or their luggage. Unlike the body and luggage scanners now in operation, RPMs are specifically targeted against the nuclear materials.

BAPETAN’s current plans are for RPM devices to be installed at the Bali Airport. Working in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), plans are underway. BAPETAN plans to install large-scale detectors in three seaports outside of Bali: the Tanjung Mas Port (Semaranag), Bitung Port (North Sulawesi) and Soekarno-Hatta Port (Makassar).

The chief of BAPETAN, As Natio Lasman, said that RPMs already in operation in Surabaya, Jakarta and Medan are all on-line and monitored on a real time basis directly by his agency.
