The 2015 NNSA Defense Programs Science Council, comprising representatives from each of the three NNSA national security laboratories and one person representing the production sites, is now fully staffed.

The Science Council was re-established in 2010 by Dr. Don Cook, Deputy Administrator of Defense Programs, to investigate and explore cross-cutting science, technology and engineering issues and opportunities that have an impact across NNSA. The Science Council supports the NNSA’s Defense Programs in a wide range of areas including promoting the best science and technology throughout the enterprise, analyzing stockpile planning and hedge strategies, and communications such as support to the NNSA Stockpile Stewardship and Management Plan development. In addition, the Science Council also supports the Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, Office of Counterintelligence, DoD and other federal agencies in areas aligned to Defense Programs interests.
