US restructures defense plutonium infrastructure

The Department of Defense has announced that much of the infrastructure surrounding defense plutonium in the United States is about to be restructured. They are aiming to increase production of plutonium pits — the production of pits at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico is going to be increased and efficiency maximized; a facility at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina is going to be repurposed to plutonium pit production.
