About the Center for Computing Research (CCR)

The Center for Computing Research (CCR) at Sandia creates technology and solutions for many of our nation's most demanding national security challenges. The Center's portfolio spans the spectrum from fundamental research to state of the art applications. Our work includes computer system architecture (both hardware and software); enabling technology for modeling physical and engineering systems; and research in discrete mathematics, data analytics, cognitive modeling, and decision support materials. 

The Center for Computing Research enterprise is closely tied to the laboratories' broader set of missions and strategies. Application areas include nuclear weapons, cyber security, and energy and CO2 challenges such as climate modeling, alternative energy technologies, and improvements to the power grid. We also share responsibility within Sandia as stewards of important capabilities for the nation in high-strain-rate physics, scientific visualization, optimization, uncertainty quantification, scalable solvers, inverse methods and computational materials.
