2018 Theme: The Administration’s New Nuclear Posture Review

The 2018 Nuclear Deterrence Summit will bring together leaders from across the U.S. nuclear enterprise to discuss high-level policy recommendations as outlined in the administration’s new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). The final document, set to be released early in 2018 will assess plans for each leg of the nuclear triad, the nuclear warhead work at NNSA and the Nuclear Command and Control Requirements.

The review will detail the administration’s priorities for modernization and how this effort will relate to the nation’s policies on nonproliferation, arms control and keeping the nation safe from nuclear attack as well as continuing efforts by the Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office to combat future nuclear smuggling and terrorism activities.

Celebrate our 10th anniversary with us in 2018!

What Past Attendees Say

This continues to be a valuable opportunity for individuals associated with the Nation's nuclear infrastructure to meet and discuss areas of interest and codify their perspectives.
The right mix of presenters, good break periods, right mix of social events - it was good to have a "free" night on Thursday.
The conference was well done and supported by a variety of different civilian and government agencies with great guest speakers.
Great event...appreciated the long breaks, as it allowed networking. Talks were excellent
