The Global Security Principal Directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) applies multidisciplinary science and technology to anticipate, innovate, and deliver responsive solutions to complex global security needs. This includes support of the U.S. government's efforts to:
LLNL is a premier applied science laboratory that is part of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) within the Department of Energy (DOE). LLNL is a government-owned, contractor-operated Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), and is currently managed by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC.
LLNL performs work for a wide range of government agencies through several contracting vehicles. We actively seek to partner with other organizations in order to meet our customers' needs. Companies are also encouraged to review the LLNL's technology transfer website.
Livermore scientist Francesco Fornasiero has developed a smart material that can provide breathability and protection against deadly chemical and biological threats such as Sarin and the Ebola virus.
“Our mission is to solve a long-standing problem for first responders, medical personnel, and soldiers,” says the chemical engineer, who grew up in a small town near Venice, Italy. “Since their protective clothing can’t remove water vapor fast enough, perspiration gets trapped. This makes the garments uncomfortable and too hot to wear for an extended amount of time.”
