Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work and Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall have visited the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California to take a classified tour of its key facilities, DoD News reported Thursday.

Terri Moon Cronk writes that the visit highlighted the laboratory’s work to support the U.S. nuclear program.

“[Livermore is] responsible for the surety of the weapons we have in our stockpile,” Work noted.

“They do tests, designs and are training the next generation of nuclear weapons specialists.”

Kendall and Work were on hand to observe the laboratory’s operations in the National Security Weapons Vault and National Ignition Facility, Cronk reports.

The officials also discussed government-industry collaboration for dual-use technology during the tour, the report said.
