Project Announcement: Evaluation of the Nuclear Certification of the B61-12 Nuclear Bomb (Project No. D2022-DEV0SN-0154.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in July 2022. The objective of this evaluation is to determine to what extent the Air Force’s nuclear certification of the F-15, B-2, and F-35 to carry the B61-12 nuclear bomb complied with Department of Energy, DoD, and Air Force requirements. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds and consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
