Future Outlook

From front to back, Kara Greenfield, Joel Acevedo-Aviles, Daniel Hlbert, and William Campbell re extracted information using VizLinc, an open-source software system developed by Lincoln Laboratory to integrate information extraction, search, graphical analysis, and geolocation for the Department of Defense and the intelligence community.

  • Lincoln Laboratory will continue to use unconventional sensors and human language technology to explore cyber analysis and threat discovery.
  • Leveraging foundational security metrics work performed for the Department of Homeland Security, the Laboratory will develop cyber risk-quantification methods for DoD missions.
  • The Cyber System Assessments Group will continue cyber vulnerability assessments of U.S. tactical systems and architectures.
  • The Laboratory’s expanding role with U.S. Transportation Command will include helping the command define its future vision for cyber situational awareness and resiliency.
  • Cyber technology assessments will expand to government entities, including Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, Office of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation, and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
  • To support the Air Force Research Laboratory’s development of a secure, resilient embedded system architecture for airborne and other platforms, the Laboratory is contributing technology for key management, resilient design, and resilience assessment.
  • The Laboratory will develop, test, and evaluate novel cyber inference and prediction algorithms in support of intelligence community missions.
