Title: 2017-04-28_B61-12-Program Overview(OUO).

Abstract

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 toward 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).
