At the heart of the Bush administration's plan Reliable Replacement Warhead (RRW) program. Launched in 2004, RRW promises to produce new, technologically updated warheads that should be simpler, safer, easier to maintain, and more reliable than the estimated 10,000 warheads in the current U.S. stockpile.
