The Department of Safeguards 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 two Offices: the Office of Safeguards Analytical Services and the Office of Information and Communication Services.
The Division of Technical and Scientific Services is responsible for nuclear and other measurement systems applied in verification activities, containment and surveillance techniques and all verification logistics.
The Unattended Systems Section consists of the Surveillance Team and the Unattended Monitoring Systems Team. The Section is responsible for the complete lifecycle, including development, assembly, testing, deployment, and maintenance, of all measurement and surveillance safeguards equipment permanently installed and operating in unattended mode at nuclear facilities worldwide. In addition, the Section provides expert services to the other Divisions in the Department in the area of unattended systems, such as support in data review and analysis.
Under the general supervision of the Surveillance Team Leader, the Video Technician will be responsible for testing, evaluating, and installing safeguards digital surveillance and other unattended monitoring equipment. He/she will perform routine technical maintenance of installed equipment and provide support to the end-users as required.
