Inventing the technological building blocks of future systems
R&D in advanced technology focuses on inventing new materials, devices, and components to enable revolutionary system capabilities. We pursue innovation in a wide set of areas, including imagers, lasers, quantum computing, microsystems, RF technology, and chemical sensors.
Advanced Technology Groups
Optical atomic clocks are the most accurate in the world, but they are very large, sensitive instruments. We are transforming the complex components of these clocks into a compact, portable platform.
A small, low-cost system that leverages long-length fibers embedded with electronics could provide persistent monitoring of the undersea environment.
We are designing a satellite-based lidar system to categorize aerosols in the atmosphere.
A technology that allows system developers to combine modules produced by trusted foundries and commercial manufacturers may deliver yield enhancements and power and performance benefits to mission-critical systems.
