The Integrated Field Exercise 2014 (IFE14) is the largest on-site inspection exercise that is conducted by the CTBTO to date. IFE14 teams are testing their ability to confirm whether a nuclear explosion has taken place. The hope of conducting this largest inspection exercise is to raise the Treaty’s profile and encourage the eight remaining Annex II countries to ratify it.
