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.

The Over-the-Air Ka-band Test Terminal will be utilized to test the new Protected Tactical Waveform. The Lincoln-Laboratory-built implementation of the waveform will be used in lab and over-the-air tests to validate capabilities of vendor implementations of the waveform.
