Lincoln Laboratory's innovative, advanced technology has not only been applied to national security problems but has also had significant impact on science, industry, and society. We have developed optics that enable the discovery of phenomena in the universe, invented a 193 nm lithographic technique that is the industry standard today, and created software that is helping emergency agencies plan for disaster responses.
Revolutionary enabling technologies are paving the way to NASA's dreams for missions that send scientific data from distances as far away as Mars at incredible speeds that make possible receipt of huge volumes of data and even near-real-time data analysis.
LINEAR, the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research, program is expanding astronomers' knowledge about the population of asteroids and comets in our solar system.

Track an asteroid detection

These two animated, time-stamped images, first one from July 2016 and second one from October 2016, show typical asteroid detections with the Space Surveillance Telescope.
Lincoln Laboratory deployed tools and teams that helped emergency agencies plan evacuations, monitor weather, provide clean water, and assess the damage wrought by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
Through the Lincoln Laboratory Supercomputing Center (LLSC), researchers are tapping into New England's most powerful supercomputer from their desktops. They're using it to run large-scale simulations, prototype algorithms, and conduct data analysis tasks that, because of their size and complexity, require thousands of parallel processors. And they're doing it all on a system that runs 100 percent carbon free.
