The National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Pantex Facility is this Nation's
only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility. The nature of such work
necessitates the development and implementation of protection strategies based upon the
Department of Energy's (Department) Design Basis Threat process. Facilities such as
Pantex develop Site Safeguards and Security Plans to describe the physical protection
programs, evaluations of risk, and identified facility targets associated with the threat.
