Our mission is to perform high energy density physics (HEDP) experiments for stockpile stewardship and develop the basic science of HEDP while delivering a high-yield inertial confinement fusion (ICF) capability for application to weapons effects, weapons physics, and energy production. We team with universities, industry, international partners, and other Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories.
