In addition to an impressive record of technical innovation in communications, space surveillance, advanced electronics, and air and missile defense, today the Laboratory is also leading the way in newer areas such as cyber security, integrated sensing and decision support, and homeland protection.
Behind every laboratory solution are researchers with exceptional technical abilities and imagination, developing systems from the initial concept stage, through simulation and analysis, to design and prototyping, and finally to real world demonstrations. Cross-disciplinary collaboration and the breadth of Lincoln Laboratory’s research enable continuous technical growth for its scientists – and they also inspire unparalleled creativity.
