Summary This report of the Stimson Center's Task Force addresses one critical aspect of our nation's S & T future: transformation of our nuclear weapons Laboratories. In early 2008, the Stimson Center convened a bipartisan Task Force comprised of counterterrorism, nonproliferation, intelligence, military, business, and scientific experts to provide the incoming administration with a roadmap to more effectively leverage the existing capabilities at the nation's nuclear weapons Laboratories and Nevada Test Site (NTS) to meet an array of emerging vital national security challenges. The strategy has two key purposes: to ensure retention of core nuclear weapons competencies at the weapons Laboratories and NTS, and to expand their S & T capabilities to service a wider array of 21st century national security needs
