[en] 21 May 2011 would have marked the 90th birthday of Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov, a towering 20th-century figure in science and human thought, whose ideas, research contributions, and life example exerted enormous influence on the history of the second half of the 20th century and, in particular, on the history of Russia. Whether as a scientist or a private person (including his public activities and exceptional attitude to human personality), he always displayed creativity and a freedom of spirit, thought, and action. Sakharov's life and creative work make him a model scientist and citizen for many and undoubtedly provide a legacy for the development of science and society in the 21st century. In this paper, some of Sakharov's key ideas and achievements relating to his KB-11 period are exemplified, and how they influence present day research and technology, notably as employed for affording national security, is examined. (conferences and symposia)
[en] The purpose of this report is to describe and present the latest CAI analyses for the Rainier Mesa/Shoshone Mountain (RM/SM) CAU and review their role in the broader, historical context of CAI activities at RM/SM. As described in Sections 1.4 and 1.5, the current work was initiated after specific concerns arose during a previous CAI phase, which eventually prompted a revision of the FFACO process and the adoption of an alternative modeling strategy (AMS) for CAI work at RM/SM. The remainder of this report will describe the CAI modeling activities conducted through 2017 under the revised FFACO process and AMS discussed above.
[en] This report presents the analytical data for the 2017 calendar year (CY) (January 1 through December 31, 2017) and an evaluation of the data to ensure that the Sampling Plan’s objectives are achieved. Data from samples collected in 2016 that were not reported in the UGTA CY 2016 Annual Sampling Analysis Report (DOE/EMNV, 2018b) are presented in Appendix D.
[en] Educating the next cadre of specialists and thought leaders on nuclear issues – including nuclear security, nuclear energy, and nuclear nonproliferation—has become a critical national security imperative in the U.S. These workforce challenges are not unique to the U.S. nuclear sector. Addressing this critical shortage in the nation’s nuclear workforce and responding to emerging nuclear challenges confronting our national security will require considerable investments in nuclear-related education programs across the nation. These workforce challenges are particularly acute in the field of nuclear security. To enhance skills and knowledge of the next cadre of specialists in nuclear security, the Pennsylvania State University jointly with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Texas A&M University launched a nuclear security education program in 2010, with an initial contract from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) program. The three universities and GTRI collaboratively developed a list of courses for the nuclear security education program.

[en] Stewardship science is research important to national security interests that include stockpile stewardship science, homeland security, nuclear forensics, and non-proliferation. To help address challenges in stewardship science and workforce development, the Stewardship Science Academic Alliances (SSAA) was inaugurated ten years ago by the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U. S. Department of Energy. The goal was to enhance connections between NNSA laboratories and the activities of university scientists and their students in research areas important to NNSA, including low-energy nuclear science. This paper presents an overview of recent research in low-energy nuclear science supported by the Stewardship Science Academic Alliances and the applications of this research to stewardship science.
