Note
**Project RR title changes from Combating WMD Test and Evaluation to Countering WMD Test and Evaluation beginning in FY 2017.

A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification
The Countering WMD Test and Evaluation project provides a unique national test bed capability for simulated Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) facility
characterization, weapon-target interaction, and WMD facility defeat testing. The test bed facility provides structured and systematic end-to-end test event planning,
preparation, management, execution, and data analysis. The test bed offers test instrumentation (data acquisition systems and optics), scientific analysis and
predictions, test article construction, test article/test bed remediation, tunnel mining, architectural and engineering design, systems engineering and integration, and test
data management. The facility leverages fifty years of expertise in investigating weapons effects and target response across the spectrum of hostile environments that
could be created by proliferant nations or terrorist organizations with access to advanced conventional weapons or WMD. Subject matter experts design full and sub-
scale testing strategies focusing on weapon-target interaction with fixed soft and hardened facilities to include above ground facilities, cut-and-cover facilities, and deep
underground tunnels. This capability does not exist anywhere else within the Department of Defense (DoD) and supports the counterproliferation pillar of the National
Strategy to Counter WMD.

The increase from FY 2015 to FY 2016 is due to increased investment in test and technology support and the national test bed. The increase from FY 2016 to FY 2017
is due to increased investment in test and technology support to revitalize DTRA’s CWMD test and evaluation capability.

B. Accomplishments/Planned Programs ($ in Millions) FY 2015 FY 2016 FY 2017
RR: Countering WMD Test and Evaluation

Project RR provides a unique national test bed capability for the study of weapon-target interaction, simulated
WMD facility characterization, and WMD facility defeat testing to evaluate the implications of WMD and other special weapon use
against U.S. military and civilian assets.

- Continued CWMD testing/demonstration at Nevada National Security Site to defeat credible and threat-based scenarios;
continue with transition into several related projects/planned events through FY 2017.
- Continued technical and testing development and demonstration of TransAtlantic Collaboration Biological Resiliency Demo, a
DoD capability to shape interagency approach to counter a wide area biological event impacting U.S. and partner nations’ key
civilian/military infrastructure.
- Continued testing in support of “Speed of Sound” nuclear forensics activities.

B. Accomplishments/Planned Programs ($ in Millions) FY 2015 FY 2016 FY 2017
- Supported revitalized Weapons Effects Phenomenology efforts supporting DTRA test activities.
- Continued testing in support of the Treaty Verification Technology program and Source Physics Experiment to support
Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty initiatives, New START warhead verification, and detection and verification of biological and
chemical weapons.
- Continued support of WMD sensor testing at the Technical Evaluation Assessment and Monitor Site to detect and prevent
nuclear grade material from entering the United States, U.S. territories, and Allied Nations through air, rail, and ship ports.
- Continued testing chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) sensors, WMD
countermeasures, remote geological sensing, and battle management systems designed for surveillance and tracking targets
used for WMD activities.
- Continued nuclear detection and forensics testing to prevent weapons grade material/dirty bombs from entering the United
States, U.S. territories, and Allied Nations.
- Continued environmental test bed remediation and compliance activities at the Nevada National Security Site, White Sands
Missile Range, and Kirkland AFB in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), safety, and environmental
guidelines. Defer major demolition and restoration efforts of major test articles while ensuring they are safely closed and sealed at
acceptable standards.
- Maintained current inventory of infrastructure and instrumentation, extending the life-cycle of these items as long as possible to
ensure test beds meet customers’ advanced technology testing needs.

- Begin testing at Nevada National Security Site in support of the nonproliferation portion of the National Center for Nuclear
Security portfolio.
- Conduct CWMD testing/demonstration at Nevada National Security Site to defeat credible and threat-based scenarios with
transition into several related projects/planned events.
- Continue technical and testing development/support of Transatlantic Collaborative Biological Resiliency Demonstration, a DoD
capability to shape interagency approach to counter a wide area biological event impacting U.S. and partner nations’ key civilian/
military infrastructure.
- Perform testing in support of Treaty Verification Technology program and Source Physics Experiment to support Comprehensive
Test Ban Treaty initiatives.
- Continue support of WMD sensor testing at the Technical Evaluation Assessment and Monitor Site to detect and prevent nuclear
grade material from entering the United States, U.S. territories, and Allied Nations through air, rail, and ship ports.
- Test chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high explosive (CBRNE) sensors, WMD countermeasures, remote geological
sensing, and battle management systems designed for surveillance and tracking targets used for WMD activities.
