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.

During the Pacific Command-sponsored Northern Edge exercise in Alaska, the Lincoln Laboratory team tested a high-fidelity data-collection and demonstration system designed and developed for airborne platforms. The technology provides improved interference mitigation for deployed and emerging airborne communication systems while supporting the rapid transition of capabilities into existing tactical communication networks.
