Abstract:

We are providing this memorandum report for your information and use. The audit was made in response to a request from Representative Steven Schiff of New Mexico. Representative Schiff received allegations regarding contractor management of the Thermal Radiation Source TRS simulation system of the Defense Nuclear Agency DNA. It was alleged that the contractor, Bendix Field Engineering Corporation BFEC, had not properly maintained the TRS. The TRS system simulates the temperatures a nuclear explosion generates. The TRS can be used as a stand-alone test device or with a high-explosive test HET to simulate multiple effects of a nuclear explosion.
