With its long-standing partnerships with the
defense weapons National Laboratories and the U.S. Department of
Defense, the Nevada National Security Site has been an active participant in
maintaining our nation’s security. Our technical heritage began in the
Atomic Age with atmospheric tests, continuing with underground testing
and weapons systems experiments. Our skills and technologies for
fielding complex experiments continue to transition to a primary mission
of science-based stewardship of the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile.
These same skills have also served as the basis to solve other national
security challenges to combat terrorism.
