The annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit is the preeminent gathering of U.S. and international leaders, experts and industry executives in the field of nuclear deterrence. With discussion ranging from management of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex and the security of the stockpile to arms control negotiations and strategic policy, the Nuclear Deterrence Summit annually brings together the top minds in the field for what has been described as a ‘nuclear Davos.’ If you’re involved in any facet of the U.S. nuclear weapons complex, U.S. strategic forces or nuclear weapons policy, this is an event you can’t afford to miss.
Nearly 375 participants gathered at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., Feb. 17-20 for the seventh annual Nuclear Deterrence Summit to hear more than two dozen government officials, nuclear experts, industry and executives and Congressional staff. The four-day event included speeches by National Nuclear Security Administration chief Frank Klotz, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Rose Gottemoeller, Russian Amb. Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak, Navy Strategic Systems Programs Director Vice Adm. Terry Benedict, Air Force Global Strike Command Director of Operations Maj. Gen. Michael Fortney, and Principal Director of Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy Greg Weaver.
The summit also included panel discussions on governance of the nuclear security enterprise, modernization priorities for the nation’s nuclear deterrent, and industry perspectives on the path forward for the weapons complex as well as addresses by Sandia National Laboratories Director Paul Hommert, Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Charlie McMillan, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Director Bill Goldstein, NNSA Acquisition and Project Management chief Bob Raines, and NNSA Associate Administrator for Infrastructure and Operations Jim McConnell.
Longtime weapons complex official Troy Wade was awarded with the third annual Johnny Foster Award. Wade served more than 50 years in the nation’s nuclear weapons programs in a variety of roles, from his time as a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory nuclear weapons explosives expert at the Nevada Test Site in the early 1960s to his tenure as the Assistant Secretary of Energy for Defense Programs.
