FY19 ANNUAL REPORT
Sandia’s LDRD Program Structure Sandia’s LDRD investments are structured around three Program Areas, which are further broken down into Investment Areas (IAs). Each IA is focused on discipline- or mission-based research priorities set by Sandia’s leadership. The LDRD program structure and the allocation of funds to the associated IAs are designed to align LDRD investments with Sandia strategy and future national security mission needs. LDRD Investment Area Roles Research Foundations: Research Foundations steward discipline-based science, technology, and engineering competencies that address the extensive national security challenges within Sandia’s mission space. Each of the Research Foundations focuses on stewarding differentiating or unique capabilities in seven areas.
Mission Foundations: Sandia oversees five major portfolios that address national security mission challenges. LDRD Mission Foundations align with the portfolios and conduct the applied research needed to develop capabilities and demonstrate solutions.
