Principal Accomplishments

    Patrick Cable upgrades storage in the Lincoln Laboratory Secure and Resilient Cloud test bed. Researchers use this test bed to develop and test next-generation cloud security technologies, such as encrypted databases that allow the intelligence community to conduct counterterrorism missions while protecting privacy.
  • The Laboratory developed and demonstrated a next-generation secure processor that has advanced key management, hardware-accelerated cryptography, and intrinsic support for volume protection.
  • Several large experiments were conducted in support of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Director of Operational Test and Evaluation and the U.S. Cyber Command’s (USCYBERCOM) Project C. The experiments focused on the performance of USCYBERCOM Cyber Protection Teams. The Laboratory completed in-depth cyber vulnerability assessments of multiple U.S. tactical platforms.
  • Data integrity capabilities were developed for use in a key U.S. Navy information processing system.
  • In conjunction with operational users from across cyber centers at multiple combatant commands, Lincoln Laboratory tested cyber behavioral and temporal anomaly detection analytics.
  • A tactical edge cyber-electromagnetic environment emulation was developed to support U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) training and exercises.
  • In partnership with potential USMC users, the Laboratory demonstrated the utility of its prototype wearable augmented-reality displays for a tactical urban setting.
  • The MIT SuperCloud is the first cloud environment that delivers big data, database, supercomputing, and enterprise clouds on the same hardware without compromising performance. Lincoln Laboratory developed the SuperCloud in collaboration with the Engaging Supercomputing Research Projects at Beaver Works.
  • The Laboratory’s new hidden Markov model techniques allow the recognition of time-varying patterns of behavior in transactional data, including potentially fraudulent financial transactions.
  • Deep neural network recognition techniques were successfully applied to language and speaker recognition and demonstrated significant performance improvements over previous state-of-the-art systems.
  • At an international competition in machine translation, Lincoln Laboratory scored highest in several tracks, including those for Arabic-to-English, Farsi-to-English, and Russian-to-English translation.
  • The VOCALinc speaker-comparison software tool was transitioned to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). VOCALinc is the first automated speaker-recognition system to be adopted and included in an FBI forensic standard operating procedure.
