In the wake of the Salisbury accidents, the Home Office was keen to reassure key stakeholders and the general public around the measures in place to detect and prevent radiological and nuclear risks in the UK.

What did we find that was extraordinary? A complex infrastructure network is already in place that is designed to combat these threats head on.

How we extracted the extraordinary

Liaising with the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism and the JSaRC team, we devised a simple way to represent the various layers of the UK’s radiological and nuclear detection infrastructure so as to make it accessible to a public that doesn’t necessarily have extensive technical knowledge in this field.

We created a suite of icons to represent each capability, and colour-coded the visualisation to help understand how all capabilities interconnect and complement each other, conveying the reassurance the Home Office wanted to communicate.
