Tank Monitoring Evaluation Systems (TaMES) help IAEA inspectors evaluate measurements collected by data acquisition systems installed in facilities under safeguards. These systems provide assurance that plutonium carrying solutions travel through a facility as expected. They also support near-real time accountancy. The methods and algorithms that are central to TaMES are based on a sub-event representation that facilitates flexible reasoning. These sub- events are collected together to represent events that most likely describe what is going on. Typical events include imports, exports, inter-tank transfers, recirculation and acid addition. The inspector interface is an important part of the overall system.
