LANL > Director updates Senate Subcommittee on a number of issues

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 our mission requirements.
The following came from the Senate website and this was McMillan’s written testimony to the subcommittee.
McMillan first talked about the lab’s accomplishments in the past year.
“In regard to our weapons program, we again completed, on time, my letter to the Secretaries of Energy and Defense regarding the 2013 Annual Assessment. We successfully conducted two B61 hydrodynamic shots, which were executed as planned and within committed budget levels,” McMillan wrote.
“Los Alamos executed the important subcritical experimental series, Gemini, and I am pleased that the FY15 request recognizes this success by including an increase for the Los Alamos subcritical experiments at Nevada.”
