Helping to Ensure Energy and Homeland Security
LLNL is developing innovative science and technology solutions that secure energy supply, ensure infrastructure reliability, and deliver resilience to climate change. Laboratory scientists and engineers are working to develop technologies in these critical national security areas:
- Energy Security—Increase security and supply of U.S. energy resources, while minimizing environmental impacts and reducing costs
- Cyber and Infrastructure Resilience—Enhance the security and resiliency of civilian networks and critical infrastructure to cyber and physical threats
- Engineering the Carbon Economy—Create the science and technology to support global scale carbon dioxide removal
- Defense Systems and Infrastructure Protection—Leverage autonomy, machine intelligence and directed energy for the warfighter
See the Energy Security Mission page for more information about how Lawrence Livermore applies high-performance computing to solve challenges and for links to related articles.
Livermore helps protect our borders by developing technology to detect the entry of illicit special nuclear materials (uranium and plutonium isotopes). Rebecca Nikolic recently led a team that developed miniaturized solid-state neutron detectors that are far more efficient and compact than existing devices.
