Sandia National Laboratories
Exceptional service in the national interest
Sandia is a recognized world leader in non-proliferation capabilities and leads the Center for Global Security and Cooperation (CGSC). The CGSC and its predecessors have supported global security and nonproliferation for more than 70 years and works to achieve global security through international technical engagement. We work with U.S. and international partners to create solutions that will proactively manage risks associated with nuclear and radiological materials, including border risk management, global civilian radiological and nuclear energy security, and countering the threat of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Through the CGSC, Sandia creates innovative technical solutions and develops enduring partnerships to assist countries in complying with international nuclear obligations. Specific technical areas include illicit trade identification and threat reduction, next generation arms control, verification, and monitoring techniques, and emerging technology assessments for safeguards and export control. Within the CGSC, Sandia leads a unique national capability: The Cooperative Monitoring Center (CMC). The CMC provides a venue in which global experts explore applications of open research and unclassified technology, including fostering partnerships, hosting visiting research scholars, collaborative experiments and tests, and building shared understanding and confidence.
Advanced Reactors provide reliable and clean energy in an affordable and scalable format, but foreign advanced reactor designs do not always consider safety, security, and safeguards (3S) for nuclear materials. As a result, their reactors cheaper but less secure. Sandia has deep 3S expertise and capabilities, and builds on well-established working relationships with policymakers, industry, and foreign partners to develop comprehensive and cost-effective 3S solutions that advance U.S. technological competitiveness and national security objectives.
We partner with large and small businesses, universities, and government agencies. With multiple agreement types to select from, partners can access world-class science, engineering, experts, and infrastructure.
