About the NNSS

Mission of the NNSS
The Nevada National Security Site helps ensure the security of the United States and its allies by supporting the stewardship of the nuclear deterrent, providing emergency response capability and training, and contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives. We execute unique national-level experiments, support national security customers through work for others, manage the legacy of the Cold War nuclear deterrent, and provide long-term environmental stewardship for site missions.

A Premier National Security Resource
Located in a remote, highly secure area of southern Nevada, the NNSS is a premier outdoor, indoor, and underground national laboratory. It is a preferred location for experiments supporting the NNSA’s nuclear weapons Stockpile Stewardship Programs, national defense programs, and national security research, development and training programs, as well as vital programs of other federal agencies.

1) Nuclear Weapons Science is experimental support for the Stockpile Stewardship Program to ensure the Nation’s remaining nuclear weapons stockpile remains safe, secure, and effective. These activities include breakthrough nuclear experiments, the use of world-class diagnostic measurement systems, high-tech computer simulations, and detailed engineering analysis;

3) Environmental Management, which includes environmental protection, compliance, and monitoring of the air, land, water, plants, animals, and cultural resources at the NNSS; investigation and implementation of appropriate, cost-effective corrective actions to address legacy contamination from historic nuclear weapons testing at the site; and permanent disposal of low-level and mixed low-level radioactive waste generated by environmental clean-up activities at the NNSS and other sites across the nuclear weapons complex.

Larger than the state of Rhode Island, the 1,360-square-mile Nevada National Security Site is located 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The contractor-operated site is overseen by the NNSA’s Nevada Field Office. Satellite offices are maintained in Los Alamos and Albuquerque, New Mexico; Santa Barbara and Livermore, California; and Washington, D.C.

The scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and technicians at the NNSS and its satellite locations partner with colleagues from across the National Security Enterprise, including the national laboratories and the defense and intelligence communities, to execute a multitude of high-level experimental, research, and training activities in support of national security.
