The Nuclear Weapon Systems Project

Via Jeremy Singer Vine – Data is Plural: “The Council on Strategic Risks’s Nuclear Weapon Systems Project aims “to document every type of nuclear weapon system ever deployed” by China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US — the five “nuclear weapon states” per the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The project’s core dataset, launched last week, currently covers 250+ such systems. For each, it provides the system’s name, country, type (gravity bomb, torpedo, ICBM, etc.), military branches in charge of deployment, “mission” (tactical, strategic, or hybrid), years introduced and retired, replacement system, and more. Previously: Nuclear stockpiles (DIP 2022.11.02), nuclear explosions (DIP 2016.03.23), and uranium/plutonium facilities (DIP 2016.02.24).”
