DIS harnesses capabilities from across our core research areas and other research divisions at Argonne to address emerging national and global security challenges. The sections below provide current examples of issues where our staff are collaborating in cutting-edge research and analysis to help address dynamic problem sets that face today’s decision-makers.
Advanced Supply Chain Analytics
The Advanced Supply Chain Analytics (ASCA) initiative brings to bear a diverse set of data analytics, modeling, simulation, and visualization tools upon the challenge of assuring or denying complex supply chains.
Climate Risk and Resilience
Argonne is a leader in next-generation climate science and modeling and in combining these capabilities with a vast array of scientific and engineering expertise to inform decisions and enable action.
COVID-19 Impact Analyses
Argonne is a leader in developing tools to support and inform key decision makers in long-term COVID-19 recovery efforts across the United States.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have joined forces with research institutions across the nation and around the globe to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Among these efforts, DIS scientists are modeling the further progression of the epidemic.
Global Asymmetric Threats
Argonne brings a unique portfolio of subject matter expertise, technical capabilities, real-world experience, and organizational relationships to help assess and manage risk associated with asymmetric threats facing the United States and its allies.
Global Energy Security Testbed
Argonne provides a world-class energy security research platform to support U.S. Government foreign policy objectives, countering the abilities of America’s adversaries to use energy for political or economic coercion.
National Economic Resilience Data Explorer (NERDE)
Argonne has partnered with the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) to develop the National Economic Resilience Data Explorer (NERDE), a data dashboard to help a variety of users across the country with local economic recovery and resilience analysis.
