ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The head of Sandia National Laboratories plans to step down after five years at the helm of the Albuquerque, New Mexico-based research center.

Sandia President and Laboratories Director Paul Hommert announced Tuesday he plans to retire in mid-summer.

Hommert says the process to name his successor is well underway and will be complete in time to assure a smooth transition.

The laboratory is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corp. and a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration.

With main facilities in Albuquerque and Livermore, California, Sandia has research and development responsibilities that cover national security, energy and environmental technologies and economic competitiveness.
