Our group applies expertise in microwave circuit design and fabrication to sensor and electronic warfare systems. Above is an integrated microwave frequency converter based on co-planar microstrip technology.

Advanced Concepts and Technologies

Our expertise is in developing radar, electronic warfare, and system-of-systems technologies for future integrated air and missile defense systems. We design highly digitized phased array radars, equipped with advanced signal processing and electronic protection, for the next generation of land, shipboard, and airborne sensors. Our staff help protect the nation's military platforms against missile threats by developing electronic attack technologies and techniques. We are also at the forefront of engagement and resource coordination research. We address all facets of new technology by developing system concepts, validating these concepts through modeling and simulation, designing hardware and software solutions for systems, and then developing prototypes that we field test.

Featured Projects

A schematic of a burning building with firefighters, firetrucks, and uncrewed aerial vehicles on the scene. Arrows link between them, each within concentric circles, to signify a radio-frequency network.
navigation systems
With the goal of enabling navigation in environments where GPS is unavailable or unreliable, researchers are developing algorithms to fuse information across a network of small, low-power radio-frequency devices.

RF technology
A deployable navigation network of small, low-cost radio transponders can help track the locations of first responders during rescue operations.
Strike Group Defender immerses users in realistic simulations to help them learn how to defend ships against missile threats in real life.
maritime defense
A serious game developed by the Laboratory will help the U.S. Navy teach sailors how to defend ships against missile threats.
