The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), through its Nuclear Weapons Complex Assessment Committee, chartered a study in May, 2006 to examine the possible role the Reliable Replacement Warhead (RRW) might play in the future of the United States nuclear weapons program. The study was motivated by concerns expressed by the DOE/NNSA and the nuclear weapons Laboratories that the current Stockpile Stewardship Program (SSP) might be inadequate to maintain the nuclear stockpile in the long term, and that the RRW approach could be the best way to resolve those concerns.
This briefing, featuring Bruce Tarter, Director Emeritus of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and Chair of the panel, will detail the findings of this report.
