Future Outlook

  • Lincoln Laboratory will continue to assess, develop, and demonstrate innovative concepts for enhancing the survivability of U.S. air vehicles. This work will inform new capability development and future technology road maps.
  • The Laboratory will be supporting the tactical community through systems analysis, advanced capability prototyping, and measurement campaigns. These efforts will address a broad spectrum of needs, with an emphasis on the evolving security challenges in the Pacific region.
  • Ongoing efforts will provide innovative concepts and prototype systems to counter terrorism and to enable operations in contested environments. The emphasis for new programs will be on developing solutions to emerging global-protection problems.
  • Continued growth in electronic warfare technology for the DoD and intelligence community is expected, predominantly in the areas of electronic protection for tactical aircraft and ground vehicles, and electronic support measures for airborne signals intelligence (SIGINT) capabilities.
A novel sensor prototype with a custom electro-optical camera and onboard processing was developed to characterize advanced real-time vision-aided navigation algorithms through instrumented flight tests.
