The mission of the Los Alamos National Laboratory's National Security Research Center is to solve national security challenges through simultaneous excellence. We achieve maximum impact on strategic national security priorities by integrating research and development solutions with operational excellence and community engagement. As a federally funded research and development center, Los Alamos National Laboratory aligns our strategic plan with priorities set by the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE NNSA) and key national strategy guidance documents. We execute work across all of DOE’s missions: national security, science, energy, and environmental management. Scientific and engineering capabilities developed through LANL’s stockpile research are part of what makes DOE and NNSA a science, technology, and engineering powerhouse for the nation. Condition: Very good.
