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, cyber security, integrated sensing, and decision support. Technology development is geared to the Laboratory s primary mission areas space control; air and missile defense; communication systems; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems; advanced electronics; tactical systems; homeland protection; cyber security; 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. As a DoD Research and Development Laboratory, Lincoln Laboratory focuses on developing and prototyping innovative technologies and enhanced capabilities to meet the evolving needs of the DoD. Lincoln Laboratory also undertakes government-sponsored, nondefense projects in areas such as the development of systems the Federal Aviation Administration relies on to improve air traffic control and air safety, and systems that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration uses in weather surveillance.
