National SCADA Testbed LogoThrough early investment and vision, Sandia established a SCADA program and an associated SCADA Testbed. This program has grown into a joint laboratory effort with Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL) sponsored by the DOE Office of Energy Assurance to form the National SCADA Test Bed (NSTB).

National SCADA TestbedIn addition to the multi-disciplinary research and development efforts at Sandia that range from autonomous agent systems applied to SCADA, to cryptographic security, system assessment, and red team activities, Sandia is able to complement its communication and control capabilities with actual generation and load facilities for distributed energy resources. From the earliest days of the Sandia SCADA Program, standards have been supported as a critical means of working with industry to support the national interest and secure our critical energy infrastructures.
