Lincoln Laboratory assists the Department of Defense in improving the development of various tactical air and counterterrorism systems through a range of activities that includes systems analysis to assess technology impact on operationally relevant scenarios, detailed and realistic instrumented tests, and rapid prototype development of U.S. and representative threat systems. A tight coupling between the Laboratory's efforts and DoD sponsors and warfighters ensures that these analyses and prototype systems are relevant and beneficial to the warfighter.
