ANS Young Members Group Spotlight on National Labs
August 26, 2021|11:00AM–12:30PM (12:00–1:30PM EDT)
Available to All Users
Join ANS's Young Members Group in exploring the Nevada National Security Site, an enterprise of special-purpose government facilities that provide testing and diagnostic services, applied science, and development engineering for the U.S. national security community.
Unique among Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration assets, the NNSS offers year-round nuclear and radiological experiments and operations in secure ground, air, and underground configurations. While this might attract users from the community of nuclear weapons scientists and engineers, the capabilities are also sited to support non-proliferation, counterterrorism, intelligence, and emergency response missions. The enterprise provides users with services such as the configuration and operation of large-scale test beds; training for and conduct of emergency response; and applied research, development, and fabrication of advanced measurement and monitoring tools. As an expansive desert operations range, the site also enables nationally recognized capabilities for render-safe, explosive, chemical, biological-simulant, and low-level waste management operations.
National security assets include:
