Thus, the IMS detects and identifies nuclear explosions, with a threshold of 1 kt, in any terrestrial environment in the world. US Department of Energy nonproliferation programs include the 1994 Initiative for Proliferation Prevention and the 1998 Nuclear Cities Initiative, in conjunction with various other government-to-government and lab-to-lab programs. 5 SNM Disposition Almost from the beginning of the nuclear era, SNM spread beyond the early nuclear weapon states, and many nations began their own nuclear programs, mostly under international auspices.
Another candidate low-yield underground test in 2010 provided no seismic signal, but did release suggestive radioactive Xe. The isotopic ratios of the Xe  were unusual, though, perhaps indicative of a mixed source-term, and the possibility of reprocessing activities could not be dismissed by some analysts. 2). 1, consistent with an underground nuclear explosion of several kt. 2 lists initial weapons tests and SNM production information for the various countries. Another clandestine nuclear proliferant was Iraq.
