Future Technologies Conference II:

The National Nuclear Security Administration's Future Technologies Conference will be a forum centered on new and emerging technologies, manufacturing methods, and business practices to enable the Weapons Complex to successfully execute its mission and support its defense and national security partners. Future success requires: Responsiveness (agility and speed) to meet mission requirements; adaptability to successfully address changing requirements; reducing the cost to perform the required design and manufacturing tasks; providing the required capabilities while reducing the size and investment in the Weapons Complex infrastructure; and, delivering products at the best value (to the "right" requirements, when needed, at the best cost).
