Fundamental to the success of Lincoln Laboratory is the ability to build hardware systems incorporating advanced technology. These systems are used as platforms for testing new concepts, as prototypes for demonstrating new capabilities, and as operational systems for addressing warfighter needs. To construct the variety of systems used in programs across all mission areas, the Laboratory relies on its extensive capabilities in mechanical design and analysis, optical system design and analysis, aerodynamic analysis, mechanical fabrication, electronics design and assembly, control system development, system integration, and environmental testing. These capabilities are centered in the Laboratory’s Engineering Division, which is an important contributor to many of the Laboratory’s most successful efforts.

The optical module for the Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration was delivered to NASA for integration onto the spacecraft.
