In the US, working on the creation of new nuclear warheads

23
The head of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSAB), Frank Klotz, reported that his department is working to its fullest extent on the eve of launching programs to create 2-x new types of sea-based nuclear warheads, reports TASS.




Klotz was asked to comment on the declassified version of the draft US nuclear doctrine promulgated by the American media, which describes plans to build a low-power nuclear warhead for ballistic missile submarines (SLBMs) ​​and a sea-based nuclear cruise missile.

We have never carried out more than one program to extend the shelf life (nuclear warheads) at the same time after the end of the cold war. Now we are essentially implementing four (such programs),
said the head of the office.

As for personnel (and their working time), we largely work to the best of our abilities, but we hire more (specialists). As for the materials necessary for this work, we (too) work to a great extent at our limits,
he said.

Klotz also paid attention to management funding. To complete all programs, the agency “will need more investment,” he noted.

Earlier it was reported that over the next 30 years, NNSAB modernization costs would exceed $ 350 billion.

      Moreover, I am sure that all countries of the Nuclear Club, without exception, have never stopped working on creating new warheads for a minute

    And this is done, of course, in the framework of the response to "Russian aggression." wink

          Hello Pasha.
          Fear. pfe-eee, but anger takes its toll !!! There is also Rex, who is the partner of the partners, his mouth dropped open !!! He’s been allowed to see the gas, or the tail was twisted, the lead singer, damn it, he pulled the old song again - Pu-pu-pu is to blame for everything ... in short, the gas team went !!! -

    The modernization of nuclear forces, there is nothing supernatural here. Now they need to catch up. Reducing power with increasing accuracy is now a trend everywhere. Replacement of the Kyrgyz Republic is also brewing - Tomahawk is really old already.

    Pindo $ iki cornered! An aging armada of nuclear missiles, without updating, forces them to "hide" at least something until the update arrives. And debts are growing! The crisis is there! The whole world will suffer from one fat nation!

    And here a reasonable question arises - who is here for world peace? wassat Wherein..

    It’s immediately clear that this shot with its department also wants to get its own piece of the pie called the US defense budget, although what kind of defense is it ...

    we (also) pretty much work to the limit,
    At the limit of strength and opportunity, but for the country (read capital). We have never carried out more than one program, but now we decided to pull four at once. Is the "Stakhanovites" American or of course Russia makes you work hard?

    Analysis of the success of the global non-nuclear strike seems to be nothing good. We decided to work out a plan of attack using TNW and INF. So they are poor poor ... I want to rock the boat to Russia. He sees the eye, but the tooth is not washing.

    Don't talk nonsense about an aging armada of nuclear missiles without an upgrade. You have to understand, you haven’t even heard about the LEP program.

    And about work. A series of new ammunition will be no sooner than in 12 years. Therefore, they can talk about new things as much as they like, but now they have only one way - the modernization of existing ammunition and the “Life Extension” program for carriers

      There is a potential for Schaub to send the world to tartarar from the warring parties.
      This must always be taken into account.

    And no one says that he is not. Sometimes they just “kill” me saying that they all have trash.
    You know, there are several categories
    1. The first category - URYAKALKI. These are those who, without touching the state of affairs of our opponents, claim that we "tear like an ace heating pad". Some kind of hatred

    2. The second category - ALL-FINGER. These, on the contrary, shout that IT'S GONEthat we have a pipe business that we, as is customary to say graduated polymer

    3. The third category - no name. They can be attributed to the first and second categories, but with a different sign. Sort of URAVSEPROPALSHIKI. They argue that it’s our adversary’s very shitty, that they graduated polymer. It is this category of writers in my opinion the most dangerous. It makes readers feel Caps. They bring under it a certain, as it seems to them, unbroken theoretical base, which is actually not worth a damn. The simplest and closest example is replica of comrade Vlad Morozov

    In what, as he writes Pindo $ iki cornered? Do they have no production of the same nuclear missiles? There is. If desired, the network can find materials on how much and at what time the Americans ordered, well, for example, Trident D-5 missiles. Moreover, this is not data from 20-30 years ago, but rather "fresh" - 2012-2014 financial years. But usually posts of this kind, like those of Vlda Morozov, work more likely at the level of emotions. Yes, very many people know that the Tridents were released almost in the 80s and early 90s. And that means junk, trash. And they already know less that they regularly shoot these missiles with a view to extending their useful life. And the fact that the rocket, despite the fact that it was created 30 with a penny years ago, is very reliable, they know even less. How many successful test launches know even less. All this gives rise to the effect of hatred-making - they say they have trash.
    The same goes for the other. "Minutemans", despite the years of its release - the 70s over the past 10-15 years have gone through a cycle of processing, not even modernization. Replaced all. Engines, fuel of all levels. Where it is necessary for the case of steps (after washing out solid fuel charges), guidance and aiming systems, warheads have been replaced. In fact, this is a completely new rocket with the old name and serial numbers.
    But most often they speak of these missiles as obsolete trash.

    That’s what the Americans really have problems with - it’s in their Nuclear weapons complex - nuclear weapons complex. The collapse of the Union created an euphoric effect for them and they simply “scored” certain problems. Instead of modernization (and spending money) they simply closed or redesigned production. And now. when they realized - the problem arose in them, not even in money, but in TIME. Now their nuclear weapons can only do two things with warheads:

    1. Upgrade, which they do by upgrading their BG from, for example W-80 в In-80-2 and further to In-80-4
    2. Dispose of warheads withdrawn from service. About 350 per yearalthough with an increase in funding, the amount could go up to 600 per year.

    Release serially new IW warheads they cannot and according to their calculations will not earlier than 2030 of the year

    So I agree with you - that the world in ruins has forces and they

      War is not necessary ... neither big nor small, no war!
      All these predictions, mantras, films of the book for the post apocalypse do not inspire me in any way, they only scare me!

    Think of it as science fiction (or not science) fiction. especially to the forecasts. This is a favorite topic. “Political scientists” and “analysts” with specialized education are especially fond of making forecasts, far from this topic. . To be honest, I prefer scientific and technical reports, or even reports at the level of "political scientist" - "analyst", then at least confirmed from numerous sources

      The technical aspect of the problem is boring, you have to understand it, study literature, work hard ......
      I’m not bored ... when it was considered obligatory, habits remained.
      Suppose that the enemy’s nuclear weapons are indeed "sour". It is known that restoring its parameters is expensive and technically difficult. The carriers of these weapons are not getting younger either!
      The adversary has problems, which means URY, we are “winning” .... by the way, we ourselves have the same problems, but this is a side issue.
      Adversary, not a weak power in all respects, solves this problem. Now he will make a little less in number, less powerful, but very accurate I ammunition, for which he and the carrier is ready !!!! By the way, theirs go in about the same way, only with great strain, in view of objective reasons !!!
      A logical assessment of events begs, in the light of obtaining new information - who felt better? Has the risk of apocalypse decreased? Is it time for the URY to scream or is it better to think for world peace? ... and beyond.

    Yes, boring, but you need to understand ... You are right. I’m not bored either, sometimes you learn a lot of new things (also an old habit)

    Well, let's just say, not "sour". They are still regularly upgrading. But of course there are some problems. And not even technical or financial, but temporary. Well and with carriers - certainly do not grow younger. Unfortunately, they were able to carry out a serial upgrade of the Minutemans, replacing the bonded solid propellant charges. We, it seems, alas, did not bring these technologies to the series. As a result, we write off the “Poplars” of the 80s, and the adversary has the “Ministers” of the 70s. From which only the name remains.

      Who, how and why, is modernizing their shock potential, is a topic worthy of special consideration. It is difficult to compare the identity, they are different, although it seems that they consist of the same components.
      It is interesting to speculate, of course, but I want to be convinced that it comes to everyone that the warring parties have an INSERTABLE, ALL DESTRUCTIVE potential of everything-everything. Our planet is in danger and lack of mutual understanding between the governments and peoples of the great states, nothing good can be!
      My idea - Guys, let's live together_- maybe, for starters, we fly to Mars together ???
      I am sure that there is a threat from the outside world, but the greatest danger within the country and this is not the fifth column, as they try to present us.
      So, any topic can slide into politics.

    Many people think, as I wrote above, that “we will tear them” and there will be nothing for us. Or we’ll be a babakh on the fault or along the volcano, and we will not be anything either. Not understanding that only avoiding a total conflict can save us all
