Small Business & Industry

The Laboratory is interested in working with small businesses and industry partners to develop technologies that meet identified needs in national security. By harnessing the strengths of each partner, these collaborations can take several forms to enable innovative R&D.


Lincoln Laboratory conducts R&D to provide technological solutions for problems faced by Department of Defense organizations. We also undertake projects to address needs of nondefense U.S. agencies such as NASA or the Federal Aviation Administration. Our role is to develop technologies that are beyond the scope of the government's in-house and contractor resources.

Academia & Not-for-Profits

We support collaborative research at universities across the United States and offer opportunities for partnering with academic and not-for-profit institutions.

Technology Transfer

A key component of Lincoln Laboratory's mission as a federally funded research and development center is the transfer of its technology to the government and industry. This technology transfer ensures that the U.S. military has access to innovative technical advancements and strengthens U.S. business competitiveness in the world economy.
