During their visit, they met with employees to discuss the technical challenges facing the management of the nation’s stockpile stewardship program. The discussion focused on the ongoing need for exceptional science, technology and engineering at the national laboratories in order to be able to continue to conduct the annual assessment and certification of the safety, security, performance and effectiveness of each weapon system without underground nuclear testing.
