Energy, Resources and Nonproliferation
"Our objective is to provide system perspective and critical technology solutions for fuel and water that assure secure and sustainable supply, safe and resilient delivery infrastructure, and clean and efficient use of resources. An energy system is safe if it safely supplies energy services to the end user; secure if it resists malevolently caused disruptions; reliable if it maintains delivery when/where needed; sustainable if it matches resources with mission needs; and cost effective if it delivers energy services at the lowest predictable cost."
