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 develop 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, autonomous and control systems design and analysis, energy systems design and analysis, 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.

MIT graduate students conduct a final verification of attitude-determination sensors for the Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite (MicroMAS) in Lincoln Laboratory's Environmental Test Laboratory. The MicroMAS project was a collaboration between technical groups within the Laboratory's Engineering and Space Control mission areas and researchers at MIT’s Space Systems Laboratory to design and build a low-cost nanosatellite capable of providing observations of storm dynamics.
