McMillan addresses pit production report

-A A +A

Lab> Director talks about future Life Extension Program

By The Staff

Los Alamos National Laboratory director Charlie McMillan was in Washington last week to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee Subcommittee on Strategic Forces.
McMillan provided an update on recent Los Alamos technical and scientific achievements; the proposed plutonium strategy under evaluation in numerous national security circles; and, Los Alamos budget realities that pose challenges to meeting mission requirements.
The following came from the Senate website and this was McMillan’s written testimony to the subcommittee.
In his testimony, McMillan addressed a recent Pit Production report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which was written by Jonathan Medalia.
Medalia received the help of Brett Kniss, Drew Kornreich, and Amy Wong, of Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Greg Mello and Trish Williams-Mello of Los Alamos Study Group in drafting the report.
 “Many of the ideas in the report were originally contemplated by lab staff as they began to look at alternatives to CMRR‐NF,” McMillan said. “While the report is comprehensive, it fails to recognize many of the risks and challenges certain options would face.”
