Abstract : MIT Lincoln Laboratory employs some of the nation s best technical talent to support system and technology development for national security needs. Principal core competencies are sensors, information extraction (signal processing and embedded computing), communications, integrated sensing, and decision support. Nearly all of the Lincoln Laboratory efforts are housed at its campus on Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts. MIT Lincoln Laboratory is designated a Department of Defense (DoD) Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) and a DoD Research and Development Laboratory. The Laboratory conducts research and development pertinent to national security on behalf of the military Services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the intelligence community, and other government agencies. Projects undertaken by Lincoln Laboratory focus on the development and prototyping of new technologies and capabilities to meet government needs that cannot be met as effectively by the government s existing in-house or contractor resources. Program activities extend from fundamental investigations through design and field testing of prototype systems using new technologies. A strong emphasis is placed on the transition of systems and technology to the private sector. Lincoln Laboratory has been in existence for 60 years. On its 25th and 50th anniversaries, the Laboratory received the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service in recognition of its distinguished technical innovation and scientific discoveries.
