Abstract : MIT Lincoln Laboratory is a Department of Defense (DoD) federally funded research and development center working on problems critical to national security. The Laboratory's core competencies are in sensors, information extraction (signal processing and embedded computing), communications, integrated sensing, and decision support. Technology development is geared to the Laboratory's primary mission areas-space control; air and missile defense; communications and information technology; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems; advanced electronics; tactical systems; homeland protection and biological/chemical defense; and air traffic control. Two of the Laboratory's principal technical objectives are (1) the development of components and systems for experiments, engineering measurements, and tests under field operating conditions and (2) the dissemination of information to the government, academia, and industry. Program activities extend from fundamental investigations through the design process and finally to field demonstrations of prototype systems. Emphasis is placed on transitioning systems and technology to industry.
