  Sierra has been designated as the Center for Industrial Technical Excellence (CITE) for all Petroleum and Water Distribution Systems (PAWS). With the Depot's 36,000 acres of high desert terrain we are able to provide distinct storage advantages of ample space, low humidity and low precipitation; excellent for the long term storage of mechanized vehicles located here.

Pride in Excellence!

Sierra Army Depot logo Our focus is to support our military service members who defend our nation. Our mission has changed completely since the establishment of the installation in 1942. Sierra has transitioned to a depot that supports the Department of Defense and various Interagencies within our core competency capabilities - rapid deployment, power projection, and industrial operations.


LTC Robert C. Slosson
Welcome to the official website for Sierra Army Depot (SIAD)! From the beginning of the depot's existence in 1942 until present, our strongest and most resourceful asset is the employees and their families that have continued to ensure SIAD produces world-class results in every challenge that is put before them. Through many transitions - from an ammunition depot to what it is today as the Army's Center of Industrial Technical Excellence (CITE) for all Petroleum and Water Distribution Systems (PAWS) - our employees continue with unwavering commitment not only to the Army Values, but complete dedication to supplying our Soldiers the best equipment available. Sierra is constantly seeking out new missions and ways to improve current and future business opportunities. This exploration is not just within the confines of the military family, but with private industry as well.

Whether you are a current depot employee or one that will soon be a depot employee, use the information on this web site to see what Sierra is doing to support the Soldier in the field. With the ultimate reward of serving your nation, employees at Sierra Army Depot focus their attention to leading and caring for our most precious assets; the sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, and fathers and mothers of America.

Pride in Excellence!
