Abstract. Referring to recent history, the author examines specific stages in nuclear weapons development, which, for their part, determined the fundamentals of the control system construction. The importance of the international Review Conference to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in May 2010 is noted, where serious attention was paid to the primary component of nuclear disarmament  – the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which largely predetermines what the future world will be – nuclear or nuclear free. 

Keywords: nuclear weapon, CTBT, NPT, nuclear-weapon testing, non-explosive testing, hydronuclear testing, nuclear explosive processes computer modeling
