Sandia National Laboratories' mission grew out of America's World War II atomic bomb development effort. Today, keeping the U.S. nuclear stockpile safe, secure, and reliable remains a major part of Sandia's work. But Sandia's role has evolved to address the more complex national security threats facing our country. Sandia carries out research and development in Nuclear Weapons, Defense Systems & Assessments, Energy, Climate & Infrastructure Security, and International, Homeland, & Nuclear Security. Sandia's Science, Technology, and Engineering foundation enables Sandia's mission through a capable research staff working at the forefront of innovation, collaborative research with universities and companies, and discretionary research projects with significant impact. Our highest goal is to become the laboratory the United States turns to first for innovative, science-based systems engineering solutions to the most challenging problems that threaten peace and freedom for our nation and the globe. Sandia is a government-owned/contractor operated (GOCO) facility. Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, manages Sandia for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration. We seek collaborative partnerships on emerging technologies that support our mission.
