Lincoln Laboratory develops and assesses integrated systems for defense against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and air and maritime platforms in tactical, regional, and homeland defense applications. Activities in this mission area include the investigation of system architectures, development of advanced sensor and decision support technologies, development of pathfinder prototype systems, extensive field measurements and data analysis, and the verification and assessment of deployed system capabilities. A strong emphasis is on developing innovative solutions, maturing technologies, rapidly prototyping systems, and transitioning new capabilities for operational systems to the government and government contractors.

instrumentation sensor Lincoln Laboratory is developing novel signal processing and machine learning techniques to address clutter in a maritime environment. An instrumentation sensor (above) was deployed to collect instrumented measurements on clutter, air, and maritime targets to explore and demonstrate the efficacy of these advanced techniques.
