Excerpt
Excerpt: This section summarizes the conclusions and recommendations of the 2003 JASON summer study commissioned by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to identify the distinct requirements of its stockpile stewardship program (SSP) in relation to the hardware procurement strategy of the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASCI) program. In particular, we were tasked to evaluate the increased risk to the nuclear weapons (NW) stockpile and the scientific program of SSP as a result of delaying computer acquisitions intended to advance computing capability. We were also charged to consider the confidence in our NW simulation capability and the appropriate balance between near-, intermediate- and long-term SSP needs for acquiring new hardware with increased computing capability.
