Lincoln Laboratory is working to enhance and protect the capabilities of the nation's global defense networks. Emphasis is placed on synthesizing communication system architectures, developing component technologies, building and demonstrating end-to-end system prototypes, and then transferring this technology to industry for deployment in operational systems. Current efforts focus on radio-frequency military satellite communications, free-space laser communications, tactical network radios, quantum systems, and spectrum operations.

Lunar Laser transceiver module Researchers in the Optical Communications Technology Group prepare to verify electrical interconnections prior to powered testing of the Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration terminal that is integrated onto the spacecraft.
