Center for Computing Research

The Center for Computing Research (CCR) at Sandia creates technology and solutions for many of our nation’s most demanding national security challenges. The Center’s portfolio spans the spectrum from fundamental research to state‑of‑the‑art applications. Our work includes computer system architecture (both hardware and software); enabling technology for modeling physical and engineering systems; and research in discrete mathematics, data analytics, cognitive modeling, and decision support materials.
