“Today’s announcement by Secretary Perry is great news for NNSA and our nuclear security missions. Exascale computer systems will be 50 to 100 times more powerful than today's machines, promising a profound impact on research efforts to enhance our national security. The new system at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be an invaluable tool to ensure the continued safety, security, and effectiveness of the Nation’s nuclear stockpile. NNSA is excited to be part of this initiative and I look forward to seeing this technology develop.”
