The Defense Science Board Task Force on Future Strategic Strike Forces will meet in closed session on February 20-21, 2003; March 19-20, 2003; April 24-25, 2003; May 22-23, 2003; June 18-19, 2003; and July 23-24, 2003, at SAIC, 4001 N.

The mission of the Defense Science Board is to advise the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics on scientific and technical matters as they affect the perceived needs of the Department of Defense. At these meetings, the Task Force will: assess the estimated systems life of the current nuclear strike forces; assess the future need for nuclear strike forces and recommend a strategy for the evolution of the current nuclear force capability; identify promising non-nuclear strike systems with such capabilities and consequence that they should be coherently planned and directed with strategic nuclear forces; identify new concepts and approaches, to include hypersonics, for the application of these strategic nuclear and non-nuclear forces that address the future strategic environment.

In accordance with section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law No. 92-463, as amended (5 U.S.C. App. II), it has been determined that these Defense Science Board Task Force meetings concern matters listed in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and that, accordingly, these meetings will be closed to the public.
