Operations and Intelligence Capabilities

This pillar focuses on initiatives in improving operational capabilities—military and civilian—as well as intelligence systems in the nuclear security field that support the effective mitigation and moni­toring of potential threats. Appropriately cleared re­searchers and students bring added insights to these challenges and gain greater perspective on the real-world needs for guiding their research and educational missions. As would be expected, much of this work is performed by our partner organiza­tions, although our faculty and students at both our partner locations and on the UT campus conduct fundamental research that supports this pillar.
