Abstract:

The Nuclear Stability Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRA, the Department of State, U.S. Strategic Command, and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Advanced Systems and Concepts Office of DTRA hosted this years roundtable. The goal of this years Nuclear Stability Roundtable Steering Committee was to stimulate discussion of how stability calculations should change in light of the volatile international climate. The roundtable sought to evaluate the pivotal developments in U.S. attitudes toward nuclear stability, as marked by the Administrations Nuclear Posture Review and recent policy documents such as the National Security Strategy and the National Strategy to Combat Weapons of Mass Destruction. The roundtable also served as a forum to discuss the early implications of Operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as the continuing response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Participants represented a wide array of expertise, from military operations research and modeling to the social sciences and policymaking community. Twenty presentations were selected from a pool of submitted abstracts to share recent research on pressing stability issues.
