ARES’ support to the security market spans domestic and international customers and primarily focuses on Government Nuclear and Defense.  AVERT is the primary physical threat and vulnerability assessment tool used by the Government Nuclear market, which consists of Department of Energy and Department of Defense sites involved in nuclear weapons design, production, and storage.  Additionally, critical infrastructure customers, such as the Port of Galveston, have used AVERT to justify receiving $5m in DHS port security grants.
