Abstract : MIT Lincoln Laboratory has served the nation for 56 years by developing advanced technology for national security. This annual report summarizes the Laboratory s recent technical accomplishments and future outlook. Lincoln Laboratory continues to focus on long-term technology development as well as rapid system prototyping and demonstration. The Laboratory also continues its long history of working closely with industry to transition new concepts and technology for system development and deployment. Over the past year, the Laboratory has had a change of leadership. Dr. David L. Briggs retired after 37 years of service and 8 years as Laboratory Director. The Laboratory continued its strong technology development role under Dave s leadership, and I appreciate his assistance through this year s transition. Moving forward, we will continue to emphasize the Laboratory s core values of technical excellence, innovation, and integrity. We also will continue to strengthen our focus on difficult technology challenges related to our national security needs. Recently, the Director s Office and senior management completed an update of the Laboratory s strategic plan. We reviewed national-level studies, such as the National Defense Strategy, the Quadrennial Defense Review, and recent Defense Science Board recommendations, to create our plan for the evolution of the Laboratory.
