We strive to become the laboratory that the U.S. turns to first
for technology solutions to the most challenging problems that threaten
peace and freedom for our nation and the globe.
At Sandia, national security is our business. We apply advanced
science and engineering to help our nation and allies detect, repel,
defeat, or mitigate national security threats. Our national security
mission has grown from responding to the threat of the Cold War to
countering a range of threats - some nuclear, others involving chemical
and biological weapons of mass destruction, and other acts of terrorism.
