Sandia’s programs in International, Homeland, and Nuclear Security (IHNS) range from nonproliferation and global security to homeland defense and critical asset protection. We conduct research and develop technologies for risk and threat analysis, for nuclear materials monitoring and detection, and for incident response and recovery.
We work with many domestic and international partners, applying our capabilities to reduce risks that affect complex and dynamic interdependent systems.
Our work includes projects for protecting critical U.S. government assets and installations, facilitating nonproliferation and arms control activities, safeguarding nuclear weapons and nuclear materials, reducing the risk of terrorist acts, and responding to catastrophic events and emergencies.
Our mission is to use science and technology, innovative research, and global engagement to counter threats, reduce dangers, and respond to disasters.
