Taking advantage of MOXIE, LANL technical staff this year conducted experiments at DARHT
(the Lab's Dual-Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test Facility) that greatly benefited the national's Stockpile Stewardship Program.
LANL scientists and engineers fired the first-ever double-viewpoint, multiframe hydrodynamic test at DARHT
, the Laboratory's Dual Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test facility - leading to future experiments at LANL and across the nation's nuclear security enterprise, supporting the stockpile stewardship and weapons assurance mission.
The DARHT effort is an element of the DOE's science-based program designed to ensure the safety and reliability of the country's nuclear weapons stockpile without the need for underground nuclear testing.
AlliedSignal is the first amorphous metal manufacturer to build induction cores that can support the energy requirements of the programs like DARHT," said Bruce Fisher, vice president and general manager of AlliedSignal Amorphous Metals.
