SWiFT Commissioned to Study Wind Farm Optimization

The DOE, Sandia, and Texas Tech University (TTU) commissioned the DOE/Sandia Scaled Wind Farm Technology (SWiFT) facility on Tuesday, July 9th at the Reese Technology Center in Lubbock, Texas. SWiFT is the first public facility of its kind to use multiple wind turbines to measure how wind turbines interact with one another in a wind [...]

Sandia Supported the Neuro-Inspired Computational Elements (NICE) Workshop in Albuquerque

The NICE workshop explored ways to use the brain’s superior ability to send electrical signals along massively parallel channels, with multiple intersections at downstream nodes, to handle rapidly changing, high-volume information. The hope is that rather than using the limited “if this, then that” logic of conventional computer architectures to absorb steadily increasing yet often [...]

Sandia-California Partners with Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Hydrogen-Materials Research

Dr. Bai An from AIST visited Sandia’s Livermore site during the week of May 28. This international collaboration is working to understand the atomic-level processes of hydrogen embrittlement in steels, with a particular focus on stainless steels. Dr. An is an internationally recognized expert on scanning probe microscopy, such as atomic force microscopy and scanning [...]

Sierra Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to Begin Flights Over Arctic Sea Ice

On July 16th, the Sierra, a unique unmanned aerial system (UAS) operated by the NASA Ames Research Center in northern California (learn more), began flights over the Arctic sea ice as part of the MIZOPEX (Marginal Ice Zone Observations and Processes Experiment) mission. MIZOPEX is an intensive observing campaign that will characterize the ocean surface, [...]
