Mr Feihong Kuang (CTBTO Preparatory Commission)


An on-site inspection (OSI) is a complex forensic investigation that requires a systematic approach that considers the operational, technical and time constraints specified in the Treaty. The information led inspection team functionality (ITF) and field team functionality (FTF) are comprehensive and systematic concepts that serve as essential guidance for the inspection team to conduct its missions during an OSI. This poster visualizes the ITF/FTF concept as three operational cycles: logic cycle, decision cycle and operation cycle. It illustrates how the concepts run and guide the inspection team's daily inspection activities.
