Title: Warhead Monitoring Planning and Execution

Abstract

The Warhead Measurement Campaign is a multi-laboratory project lead by the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The project will measure several items of the US nuclear weapons stockpile with a wide range of radiation detection systems. This report provides a brief summary of those LLNL executed activities for the Warhead Measurement Campaign from FY11 through FY16. A more detailed description of all of LLNL’s activiites for the WMC will be presented in the final report of a follow-on project, , LA17-V-Wx.

  • The human-robot symbiosis concept has the fundamental objective of bridging the gap between fully human-controlled and fully autonomous systems to achieve true human-robot cooperative control and intelligence. Such a system would allow improved speed, accuracy, and efficiency of task execution, while retaining the human in the loop for innovative reasoning and decision-making. Earlier research has resulted in the development of a robotic system architecture facilitating the symbiotic integration of teleoperative and automated modes of task execution. This architecture reflects a unique blend of many disciplines of artificial intelligence into a working system, including job or mission planning, dynamic task allocation,more » human-robot communication, automated monitoring, and machine learning. This report focuses on two elements of this architecture: the Job Planner and the Automated Monitor. 17 refs., 7 figs.« less
  • This briefing demonstrates the general thought process of a nuclear planner in Europe, both in the planning and execution phases of applying nuclear weapons against first-echelon regiments of a threat division in the breakthrough posture.
  • Process planning and manufacturing execution systems provide two major functions in a product development cycle. Industries require the systems that support these two functions to be able to integrate with other related manufacturing systems, such as design, resource planning, production scheduling, and equipment control. This paper presents an activity model for manufacturing execution and a set of foundation interfaces, identified in an object model, that have been developed to cope with the problem. The interfaces are intended to be a base from which they evolve as the new technology and industrial practices emerge.
  • The objective of this project (and report) is to produce a guide to developing scientific, operational, and logistical plans for a future methane hydrate-focused offshore pressure coring program. This report focuses primarily on a potential coring program in the Walker Ridge 313 and Green Canyon 955 blocks where previous investigations were undertaken as part of the 2009 Department of Energy JIP Leg II expedition, however, the approach to designing a pressure coring program that was utilized for this project may also serve as a useful model for planning pressure coring programs for hydrates in other areas. The initial portion ofmore » the report provides a brief overview of prior investigations related to gas hydrates in general and at the Walker Ridge 313 and Green Canyon 955 blocks in particular. The main content of the report provides guidance for various criteria that will come into play when designing a pressure coring program.« less
  • This volume is the fifth in a series of six reports designed to provide the surface coal mining industry and its regulators with a comprehensive review of the best available methods for extracting coal while protecting the environment. The six-volume report examines the surface mining of coal in the Eastern United States and sets guidelines for developing, evaluating, and selecting mining and reclamation plans that will be the least detrimental to the environment. This report is divided into four major areas of concentration. The first area provides a general overview of the problem of mine drainage control and the naturemore » of mine drainage water. The second area presents a review of techniques commonly used for drainage abatement and water quality control in surface mining. The third area examines a number of experimental techniques currently being considered as having some potential for controlling mine drainage water. The fourth area reviews the various aspects of the monitoring programs.« less
