The Agency is organized into a headquarters and a Field Command. Its Field Command operates the Defense Nuclear Weapons School and manages the Johnston Atoll in the Pacific, the site of the Army's Chemical Agent Demilitarization System.
The Agency's mission includes nuclear weapons stockpile management, Cooperative Threat Reduction Program support, nuclear weapon effects research, and arms control and counterproliferation support. Its research helps ensure U.S. forces are prepared to operate on future battlefields in which opponents may possess conventional, nuclear, biological, or chemical capabilities.
The Agency maintains the Department of Defense nuclear weapons stockpile and its associated reporting system, ensuring its reliability, safety, and security through training, inspections, and research. Additionally, DNA provides emergency response support and planning assistance for nuclear weapons accidents or improvised nuclear device incidents.
The Agency manages and implements the Cooperative Threat Reduction Program to assist the Newly Independent States of the Former Soviet Union in the safe, secure dismantlement of nuclear, chemical, and other weapons.
Through the use of simulators and computer models, DNA retains the
scientific expertise and develops data necessary to ensure advanced conventional systems, nuclear systems, and command and control assets will continue to operate in potential nuclear environments. This expertise is also used to provide commanders options for effective targeting against underground or hardened structures as well as enhanced battle damage assessment capabilities.
The Agency develops arms control treaty verification technologies that might be used in on-site inspections. Agency counterproliferation efforts are concentrated on technology base development and acquisition strategy development.
