Title: Sandia National Laboratories/New Mexico Facilities and Safety Information Document [NOTE: Volume 1, Chapters 6 through 10]

Abstract

Operations at the Neutron Generator Facility include fabrication of war reserve neutron generators and prototype switch tubes. Neutron generators initiate nuclear fission in a nuclear weapon by providing a flux of neutrons at the proper time. The mission of the Neutron Generator Facility is to support U.S. nuclear deterrent capabilities by fabricating war reserves of the following: Neutron generators (external initiators for nuclear weapons); Neutron tubes; and Prototype switch tubes (expanded scenario only).
