    Nuclear weapons energetic materials science, technology and engineering expertise since 1943

    A world leader in energetic materials research, development and applications, the Dynamic Experiments Center's unique capabilities enable a dynamic, flexible response to address multiple evolving mission needs.

    High Explosives (HE) Fabrication and Disposition (M-8) manufactures precision-high explosives and mock components. Our primary goal is support to the entire DOE complex with HE and mock HE (inert) fabrication with an emphasis on experimental needs at LANL, Nevada National Security Site, Sandia National Laboratories and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to complete small-scale experiments, integrated experiments, hydrodynamic experiments, sub-critical experiments, and joint-test assemblies, in a safe, secure, and efficient manner

    • M-3 Focused Experiments

      The Focused Experiments group (M-3), designs, fields, and executes energetic, hazardous, and complex system and sub-system experiments for the LANL Nuclear Weapons Program and Global Security Program.

    • M-6 Explosive Applications & Special Projects

      The Explosive Applications and Special Projects group (M-6) serves the Laboratory and nation by providing the knowledge base in high explosive testing for the Nuclear Weapons Program and other national security areas.
