Abstract The objectives of the NIC Program were to achieve ignition and thermonuclear burn in the laboratory and to develop an ignition platform for ignition and HED applications on NIF by the end of FY2012. It was also the intent of the NIC to transition the NIF to routine facility operations by the end of this period. The NIC was managed as an 'enhanced management' activity within the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The NNSA requires enhanced management activities to adhere to a multi-year (beginning-to-end) cost and schedule baseline and a Work Breakdown Structure that is under formal change control and is documented in a formal execution plan.
