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.
Researchers test the prototype standoff microwave imaging system. The antennas emit radio signals that reflect off the person standing in front of the array; the system processes the reflections to create the image on the monitors in the background.
advanced imaging
The system can rapidly and discreetly detect threat items concealed under clothes or hidden in bags of people in crowded public spaces.
PANDA's replay log files are compact and shareable, allowing for repeatable experiments. For example, a nine billion instruction set is represented by only a few hundred megabytes.
software
An open source platform helps analysts quickly reverse engineer large, real-world binary systems to better analyze how software executes.
Commercial unmanned aerial systems, like the one pictured above, are increasingly flown in urban areas; if used for illicit purposes, they can pose dangers to civilians.
UAS
The prototype is enabling DHS to test technologies that can counter the threats posed by commercial drones.
The Airborne Seeker Test Bed is a modified Gulfstream jet.
sensors
A uniquely equipped jet is an important asset for the Laboratory's R&D on multiple sensors.
The Laboratory's advanced work in miniaturized electronics enabled the development of EnteroPhone™.
bioengineering
A wireless, ingestible device monitors heart and breathing rates by listening to the body's sounds and senses core temperature, all from within the gastrointestinal tract.
Researchers conducted vapor measurements in situ with canines. The canines walked up onto the wooden platform to smell a training object while the mass spectrometer validated the presence of trace explosive vapors on the object.
chemical technologies
The mass spectrometer, an ultra-sensitive vapor detection system, allows handlers to verify the samples used to train bomb-sniffing dogs.
The commercial chest strap is equipped with the Laboratory-prototyped sensor hub. The sensor hub takes physiological measurements, which are used to estimate a strain index. This index indicates if the wearer is at risk for a heat-related illness.
biometrics
New sensors that gather data on a soldier's physiological state can help prevent heat-related injuries.
