Sandia is a multiprogram National Laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energy. With many years of experience and hundreds of successful projects in designing, developing, and delivering complex micro- to macro-sized automated systems, Sandia’s Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Cybernetics (ISRC) organization responds to challenges impacting national security and US economic competitiveness.

The Lockheed Martin Corp. has managed Sandia since Oct. 1, 1993, for the U.S. Department of Energy. Most of Sandia’s work is sponsored by DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration, but we also work for other federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and others. We work cooperatively with a number of government, U.S. industry, and academic partners to accomplish our missions.
