  • Sandia National Laboratories has initiated many joint research and development projects with the two premier Russian nuclear laboratories, VNIIEF and VNIITF, (historically known as Arzamas-16 and Chelyabinsk-70) in a wide spectrum of areas. One of the areas in which critical dialogue and technical exchange is continuing to take place is in the realm of system surety. Activities primarily include either safety or security methodology development, processes, accident environment analyses and testing, accident data-bases, assessments, and product design. Furthermore, a continuing dialog has been established between the organizations with regard to developing a better understanding of how risk is perceived andmore » analyzed in Russia versus that in the US. The result of such efforts could reduce the risk of systems to incur accidents or incidents resulting in high consequences to the public. The purpose of this paper is to provide a current overview of the Sandia surety program and its various initiatives with the Russian institutes, with an emphasis on the program scope and rationale. The historical scope of projects will be indicated. A few specific projects will be discussed, along with results to date. The extension of the joint surety initiatives to other government and industry organizations will be described. This will include the current status of a joint Sandia/VNIIEF initiative to establish an International Surety Center for Energy Intensive and High Consequence Systems and Infrastructures.« less
  • Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico's Anderson School of Management are developing a program which enables M.B.A. students to assist in commercializing Sandia-developed technologies. Thus far, students have prepared detailed business plans (which include market analyses, design and development sections, and pro forma financials) for a wide range of technologies (robotics software, electron accelerators, acoustic detectors, sof-gel processing, imaging sensors, and chemical plating). This paper reports on potential applications which include waste management, cancer treatment, oil and gas transportation, coating of plastics, manufacturing and assembly, and parts inspections. By having graduate students conduct the research necessary tomore » identify positive net-present-value projects, Sandia is able to interest private sector firms in its technologies.« less
