Title: 2017-04-28_W88 ALT 370 Program Overview(OUO).

Abstract

All major program milestones have been met and the program is executing within budget. The ALT 370 program achieved Phase 6.4 authorization in February of this year. Five component Final Design Reviews (FDRs) have been completed, indicating progress in finalizing the design and development phase of the program. A series of ground-based qualification activities have demonstrated that designs are meeting functional requirements. The first fully functional flight test, FCET-53, demonstrated end-to-end performance in normal flight environments in February. Similarly, groundbased nuclear safety and hostile environments testing indicates that the design meets requirements in these stringent environments. The first in a series of hostile blast tests was successfully conducted in April.

  • The B61-12 LEP is currently executing Phase 6.4 Production Engineering with a focus on qualification and preproduction activities. All major milestones have been successfully completed to date. Component Final Design Reviews (FDRs) continue in FY17, with 19 of 38 complete as of April 28. A series of normal and abnormal environments tests occurred in the first half of FY17, and the first qualification flight test on an F-16 was executed in March. Two F-15 qualification flight tests are planned in August. To support Pantex readiness, the first all-up-round (AUR) trainer builds were completed in December 2016. Progress is ongoing towardmore » closure of Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center (tailkit) and Los Alamos National Laboratory interface gaps, and resolution of producibility challenges with the Kansas City National Security Campus (KCNSC).« less
  • In FY92, the ALT-II program is concentrating on three main physics areas: pumped limiter experiments, which include He exhaust and high density high power operation; limiter bias experiments focused on modifying edge transport and particle removal; and and edge transport and flow studies, which examine the equilibrium edge flows and transport physics during Ohmic, L-mode, Supershot, and H-mode confinement regimes. In support of these physics objectives, a CCD diagnostic system has been delivered to TEXTOR and is being used to supplement the previous ALT-II diagnostic system. A second fast-scanning Langmuir probe was constructed at UCLA and has been delivered tomore » TEXTOR for use in studies of edge plasma flows, turbulent transport, and poloidal asymmetries. A brief synopsis of each topic is given below. Work will continue on these physics topics during the balance of FY92.« less

  • This technical report contains a listing of a general program for multi-configuration Hartree--Fock (MCHF) calculations, including its documentation. Several examples are given showing how the program may be used. Typical output for several cases is also presented. This program has been tested over an extended period of time for a large variety of cases. This program is written for the IBM 360 or 370 in double-precision arithmetic.
