DOE NATIONAL LABORATORY:
SANDIA
NATIONAL LABORATORIES

Sandia has served for more than 50 years as one of the major national defense R&D labs, starting in 1945 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as part of the Manhattan Project, which built the first nuclear weapons. AT&T began managing Sandia in 1949 after President Harry Truman offered the company "an opportunity to render an exceptional service in the national interest." In 1993, Lockheed Martin (then Martin Marietta) assumed
management of the Labs.

Today Sandia has two primary facilities, one in Albuquerque and one in Livermore, California. Sandia employs about 7,450 people and manage about $1.4 billion of work per year.

Sandia is funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy to design all of the non-nuclear components of the nation's nuclear weapons. Sandia also works closely with many U.S. government and industry groups to make contributions to preserve the nation's security. We constantly explore new opportunities to team with government, industry, and university partners in this mission. Sandia pursues "science and engineering with the mission in mind" — finding solutions to the nation's most challenging problems.

A better prosthesis: Sandia invents sensor to learn about fit; system to make fit better

Sandia National Laboratories researcher Jason Wheeler has been working to make prostheses more comfortable in a twofold approach: sensors that detect how the prosthesis fits and a system to make the fit better. He points out that it doesn't matter how high-tech a prosthesis is if it's not comfortable.
