USAF Nuclear Weapons Safety Center – Booz Allen Hamilton Engineering and Nuclear Safety Services

Sigma Science provides nuclear engineering and nuclear safety services under a $2.2 million, seven-year task order contract (with options), awarded in September 2020. Under the contract, Sigma Science provides a certified nuclear surety engineer to assist with the Air Force (AF) Nuclear Safety Design Certification (NSDC) for nuclear Weapons Generation Facilities (WGFs) across the U.S. Air Force (USAF) mission. Currently, four WGFs are in various design and construction stages (i.e., two intercontinental ballistic missile facilities and two bomber facilities for nuclear asset maintenance and storage). Three additional sites are pending design over the next six years. The NSDC's role is to review design submittals and evaluate them against pre-determined design requirements, ensuring facilities can perform their intended functions and missions and meet nuclear surety standards.
