What We Do
Sandia’s leadership in physical security grew out of decades of work securing high-consequence facilities against theft and sabotage. Used across the DOE enterprise and by other U.S. and international agencies, performance–based physical security design specifically defines a facility’s characteristics, vulnerabilities, and all the potential security risks, including an adversary’s capabilities. Its central concept ensures that the time intruders need to steal materials or sabotage a facility exceeds the time responders need to stop them in a fully integrated system.
Armed with that analysis, Sandia designs physical protection systems that are customized to meet a specific facility’s needs.
