Principal Assistant Deputy Administrator Ken Baker says the deployment of the new instruments will significantly improve the agency\'s ability to detect atmospheric, or space-based, nuclear explosions and verify compliance with nuclear test ban treaties. The sensors are being integrated on to Air Force GPS satellites, thus the entire planet is monitored continuously for tell-tale signs of treaty violation.
