About Our Team:
The Explosive Component Production II Department (7557) produces energetic components that support deliverables for Sandia's nuclear deterrence mission. We also provide mission-enabling support to all of 7550, while innovating energetic component processes and production capabilities for the organization. We are responsible for production planning, product pre-acceptance, component production, and component production data entry and analysis. We oversee the construction of the Energetics Manufacturing Science and Technology (EMSAT) facility, which will provide Mark Quality manufacturing capability to reduce risk within the current supplier base by allowing Sandia to produce products that our suppliers can't, won't, or shouldn't make while also creating backup capacity for single-source situations. The facility will allow for the modernization of production processes for the next generation explosive components and materials.
