To understand how these complex weapons programs can be developed, we assume the role of a nation seeking to build a first fission weapon, and the ability to continue to build more We introduce a large-scale project management model that includes alternate development.

This timeline of nuclear weapons development is a chronological catalog of the evolution of nuclear weapons rooting from the development of the science surrounding nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. In addition to the scientific advancements, this timeline also includes several political events relating to the development of nuclear weapons.

How did Pakistan get nuclear weapons? How long would it take Japan to develop a nuclear weapon? . As others have pointed out, Japan is in an excellent position to both build nuclear weapons and to integrate them into launch vehicles. Since you ask about the time to build nuclear weapons from scratch, let’s assume they’d need to create all the necessary tooling and test facilities. From what I can gather, I’d guess it would take Japan between six months and a year. I’d go for the lower end of that range, but all kinds of things can gum up even the best planned project.

Will any country sell a nuclear weapon to Cuba? More likely that terrorists will obtain a nuclear weapon either from a form Soviet Republic, or a small state such as North Korea, Pakistan or India. Asked in Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Weapons, Nuclear Fission.

INTERDICTING A NUCLEAR-WEAPONS PROJECT Gerald Brown, Matthew Carlyle, Robert Harney, Eric Skroch . gy to his nuclear-weapons project. Consequently, the key to developing a weapon will be to obtain the key raw material, vi. weapons-grade uranium or plutonium.

ABSTRACT A proliferator seeks to complete a first small batch of fission weapons as quickly as possible, while an interdictor wishes to delay that completion for as long as possible.

Roosevelt approves project to confirm MAUD's finding. This urged the Soviet Union to start a nuclear weapons program. 1942 - April - Joseph Stalin was first informed of the efforts to develop nuclear weapons based on a letter sent to him by Georgii Flerov pointing out that there was nothing being published on nuclear fission since its discovery, and the prominent physicists likely involved had not been publishing at all. This urged the Soviet Union to start a nuclear weapons program

This is a NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A443224. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: Despite decades of energetic international control efforts, nuclear weapons technology continues to spread worldwide. To understand how these complex weapons programs can be developed, we assume the role of a nation seeking to build a first fission weapon, and the ability to continue to build more We introduce a large-scale project management model that includes alternate development paths to achieve certain key technical milestones We show how such a project can be optimally accelerated by expediting critical tasks, Next, we present a new analysis tool to detect vulnerabilities in such a development program: we seek optimal actions to impede, set back and/or otherwise frustrate completion of a first weapon, even if the proliferation knows what we are doing to delay things, This two-sided project evaluation tool is implemented with a combination of off-the-shelf project management software, optimization software and custom code, An illustrative case study of a first fission weapon program shows how this new analysis tool can be used, Our methods also apply to chemical, biological and/or radiological dispersion weapons, as well as to more conventional strategic industrial and commercial activities.
