"Nuclear Science for National Security: R&D at LANL's Space Science and Applications Group"

Dr. Alexei Klimenko

Space Science and Applications Group (ISR-1)
Intelligence, and Space Research Division
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)

Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security.  LANL enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.  The Space Science and Applications group (ISR-1) does world-class space and astrophysics and develops the associated technologies which are applied to detect, characterize, and respond to national security threats. Our capabilities are broad-based and cover the gamut from mission concept to sensor design/manufacture/calibration, as well as spacecraft integration, mission operations, data analysis, and theory. ISR-1 is engaged in a number of pioneering space missions with NASA to enhance our underlying expertise in basic research and contribute to our technology base. Those programs cover a number of disciplines, including magnetospheric physics, planetary exploration, astrophysics, gamma-ray astronomy, optical transient detection, space situational awareness, and solar-terrestrial interactions. ISR-1 has an international reputation in nuclear phenomenology and proliferation-detection expertise and is engaged in programs supported by DOE, DOD, NASA, DHS, and other US government agencies. An overview of the research performed at the Space Science and Applications Group will be presented.

Presentation: OCNPS 200 @ 3:00 pm
Refreshments: Atrium @ 2:30 pm
