    Feature Article

  • Keeping the Nuclear Stockpile Safe, Secure, and Reliable

    (pdf file, 495K)

    The Department of Energy has launched a far-reaching plan to ensure that the nation's nuclear force remains safe, secure, and reliable without the use of underground nuclear testing. The plan, formally called the Stockpile Stewardship and Management Program, is the result of close collaboration among the Department of Energy and scientists from Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, and Sandia National Laboratories. The program will use enhanced computational and experimental capabilities to predict, detect, evaluate, and correct problems affecting nuclear weapons in the national arsenal without nuclear testing. For Lawrence Livermore, the program represents a fundamental change from its historic mission of nuclear weapons development, testing, and surveillance. Stockpile Stewardship work at LLNL centers on five major efforts: the National Ignition Facility, the Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative, hydrodynamic experiments, enhanced surveillance, and life-extension programs for Livermore-designed weapons.
