Most will remember Philip Coyle was a senior manager at LLNL in the laser and weapons programs.

Scanning this report, it seems like that make a few good points. Especially the the proposed Mod of the B-61 is really a new system.

Do these people have an editor? The document is full of basic factual errors.

This group appears to be no more than a shill for JASON, recomending at least four JASON studies in the exec summary alone.

LOL... come on - it's TATB/IHE, not HMX.

Wow, learn something new everyday. Did not know that TATB is the only explosive used in these systems.

Good point -Thanks for paying attention. So why not get going & get the HMX systems out of the stockpile? New pits, etc. why not - the safty & security improvements are well worth the cost.

You guys are quibbling over inside baseball details. This report is a good summary of the information that has been going around in NNSA circles. It's pretty interesting.

Where did that come from? I took the comment that you quoted as sarcasm since the poster above implied that there is no HMX.

I think the report was interesting as well.

They missed the mark on morale, youth retention and the long-term national commitment. And senior leadership competence. And organization design and strategy. The important stuff.

Who cares about the important stuff. Where's my annual 20% lab manager's bonus. That's what's important. Daddy wants a new sports car!
