The aging of our nuclear weapons stockpile, due to the end of the Cold War and a halt in design and production of new nuclear weapons, has brought demanding technical challenges to the Department of Energy's nuclear weapons laboratories: Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, and Sandia National Laboratories. As stewards of our nation's nuclear deterrent, our mission is to maintain a safe, secure, and reliable nuclear weapons stockpile without further underground nuclear testing. This mission is an enormous undertaking, and the Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative program has a critical role in meeting these challenges within the Science-Based Stockpile Stewardship program.
