Oak Ridge, Tennessee: Martin Marietta Energy Systems, Inc., Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant, c1993. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Staplebound. 48 pages, plus covers. Illustrations (many in color). This booklet contains a brief overview of the Y-12 development, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities and a collection of one-page write-ups of some of the technologies available for transfer to private industry. The Y-12 National Security Complex is a United States Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration facility located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, near the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. It was built as part of the Manhattan Project for the purpose of enriching uranium for the first atomic bombs. It is considered the birthplace of the atomic bomb. In the years after World War II, it has been operated as a manufacturing facility for nuclear weapons components and related defense purposes. Y-12's primary missions since the end of the Cold War have been to support defense needs through stockpile stewardship, assist on issues of nuclear non-proliferation, support the Naval Reactors program, and provide expertise to other federal agencies. Y-12 is also responsible for the maintenance and production of all uranium parts for every nuclear weapon in the United States arsenal. Y-12 is responsible for the production and maintenance of the "secondary" aspect of thermonuclear devices. Y-12 has a history of providing secure storage of nuclear material for both the United States and other governments. Martin Marietta became Lockheed Martin in 1995 so this publication was produced somewhat earlier than that date.
