Using a Risk Based Approach for Mission Assurance
Sandia Laboratories utilizes a risk-based approach focused on Mission Assurance. Mission Assurance involves analysis of mission critical functions, locations and interdependencies and determines risk-based vulnerabilities in order to provide design optimization that provides the DoD with the most “bang for the buck”. In this way, Sandia’s energy security methodology will enhance base-wide mission assurance by increasing reliability, security, and affordability of base power and energy.
Optimization of Energy Storage
Sandia Labs has recently initiated efforts to support the DoD relating to optimization of energy storage needs. New developments in this area are underway and further research and development is expected.
