Haystack Ultrawideband Satellite Imaging Radar at night
space situational awareness
Lincoln Laboratory created the world's highest-resolution radar for imaging of space objects in support of space situational awareness.
For installation aboard a launch vehicle, a space telescope using technology developed for DISCIT will fold up into the compact shape seen at the left, but will expand its segmented sparse subapertures, right, once deployed.
space
Technologies enabling the deployment of an expandable telescope from a small spacecraft could pave the way for the development of other payloads for small satellites.
The MASIVS sensor uses four focal planes.
surveillance
An airborne system provides high-resolution wide-area video imagery and onboard data processing to enable real-time monitoring of suspicious human activity.
The SST awaits nightfall to be tasked with scanning space from its location atop the Atom Site, a high-altitude observation point in New Mexico that provides a view of the sky that is virtually untouched by light pollution.
space situational awareness
A unique curved focal surface enables a highly sensitive telescope capable of surveying broad swaths of deep space to detect the faintest objects in the night sky.
Ray tracing that simulates wave propagation is used to build performance models for high-frequency radar and communication systems.
satellites
New algorithms improve the resilience of satellite and RF systems to impacts from space weather.
TESS's cameras, which will monitor planets passing in front of stars, were designed and built by Lincoln Laboratory engineers. Illustration: Chester Beals
space
A new planet hunter will spend the next two years searching for exoplanets, including those that could support life.
Optical sensors, such as the Space Surveillance Telescope, collect data that are processed by analysts at Air Force sites who use OPAL to provide detections of space objects.
software
Our researchers developed a software architecture that allows analysts to rapidly run algorithms on the volumes of sensor data collected about space objects.
Space Tactics Interns learn the operations of the high-power Millstone Hill radar that tracks space vehicles and space debris.
space
A program created by the Air Force Space Command and Lincoln Laboratory gives participants experience with advanced systems and processes for managing space operations.
Each BEACON instrument has two cylinders outfitted with copper electrodes. As the cylinders spin synchronously, the electrical field produces a signal between the electrodes; from this signal, the strength and direction of the E-field are computed.
weather
Researchers are creating a balloon-carried instrument for predicting the likelihood of lightning in a storm cloud.
