ii Director As scientific and technological advances are realized tested scaled and deployed the world becomes cleaner safer and better able to handle our greatest challenges energy security climate change water quality and shortages and global security to name a few. At Idaho National Laboratory we see the results every day of our applied science focus in the next generation of nuclear reactors in industrial plants that run more efficiently use less water and produce fewer emissions in advanced vehicles that reduce fossil fuel consumption in the trails we blaze daily in cybersecurity and wireless technology advancements and in the ballistics- resistant armor we design and develop to protect U.S. combat troops. FROM THE Mark Peters Director Idaho National Laboratory This issue of Impacts highlights INLs scientific and technological innovation notable collaborations and national and regional leadership efforts from the past year including Productive partnerships with academia industry and federal state and local governments that allow us to solve complex problems while driving economic growth and making American industry more competitive on a global scale now and into the future. Research and development moving from the laboratory to market that increases our impact and is vital in demonstrating and deploying nuclear energy and broader clean energy solutions. Products developed that enable industry and government at the federal state and local levels to coordinate critical infrastructure protection efforts and ensure the nations health safety and security. Please take a few minutes to learn more about the important work being done at INL the nations lead nuclear energy research and development laboratory. Mark Peters January 2016
