National Security Labs Day on Capitol Hill

Partnerships and Alliances

Sandian Heather Kraemer answers questions about B61-12 and other display models in the Stockpile Stewardship booth during National Laboratories Day on Capitol Hill, a major NNSA tri-labs effort.

The DOE-sponsored National Security Labs Day on Capitol Hill capped months of coordination to feature top scientists and engineers using hands-on displays to share with Congress how and why they do what they do. As part of the event, Sandia led a four-lab partnership to communicate that to date the B61-12 LEP is on schedule and budget, and how advanced engineering/science/computing capabilities enable stockpile stewardship, crossing over to benefit other missions including nuclear nonproliferation, homeland security, cyberspace, and national emergency response, all highlighted at the event.
