Rapid Prototyping

Our group of multidisciplinary engineers develop, fabricate, and test a variety of complex imaging systems, radar systems, communication systems, electronics, and sensor packages for many different applications and platforms. We specialize in rapid technology developments, typically delivering new advanced technology capabilities within 3 to 18 months. We collaborate closely with divisions and groups across the Laboratory, and we team up with the Flight Test Facility to integrate sensors on various Laboratory airborne systems.
