Lincoln Laboratory develops technology that enables the nation to meet the challenges of an increasingly congested and contested space environment. The Laboratory develops and utilizes systems to detect, track, and identify man-made satellites; collects orbital-debris detection data to support spaceflight safety; performs satellite mission and payload assessment; and investigates technology to improve monitoring of the space environment, including space weather and atmospheric and ionospheric effects. The technology emphasis is the application of new components and algorithms to enable sensors with greatly enhanced capabilities and to support the development of net-centric processing and decision support systems.

Flight-like hardware subsystems for SensorSat were integrated and tested as part of a system capability demonstration. Seen here is the imaging system, which consists of a Lincoln Laboratory–developed charge-coupled-device (CCD) imager, camera electronics, a custom lens cell, and a state-of-the-art lightweight baffle.
