Frank Klotz, director of the National Nuclear Security Administration, has said that the agency aims to further its work on the management of the U.S. nuclear arsenal and nuclear deterrence efforts.

Jim Garamone of DoD News reported Oct. 30 that he highlighted how conflicts in the Balkans and Middle East, as well as terrorism, shifted money and attention away from the nuclear enterprise.

“[The] attention, the focus and the resources that were given to our nuclear deterrent forces were not what they were in the past,” Klotz said during a Defense Writers Group gathering.

He said NNSA plans to build on its investments and capital projects to “reinvigorate” its focus on its nuclear deterrence, nuclear nonproliferation and radiological or nuclear incident response missions.

NNSA also manages the Stockpile Stewardship Program to oversee the safety and security of U.S. nuclear weapons.
