lasers
The ILLUMA-T will enable optical communications on the International Space Station.
Lincoln Laboratory personnel Joseph Zurkus, left, and Jacob Huang, right, operate a protected tactical waveform modem and collect data while Ted O'Connell, back, monitors terminal equipment during flight testing.
satellite communications (SATCOM)
Satellite communications technologies enable the U.S. military to maintain connectivity in the field.
The GPS antenna farm provides the laboratory with live-sky access to GPS satellite signals.
GPS
We conduct research on the performance and vulnerability of GPS devices embedded in military and civilian systems.
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.
This miniature unmanned aerial vehicle is capable of autonomous navigation, including coordinated maneuvering within a large group of autonomous UAS.
autonomous systems
Small unmanned systems are achieving new proficiencies in autonomy.
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.
The high-rate, entangled-photon source technologies will be integrated into the optical fiber quantum network test bed.
quantum
Lincoln Laboratory and MIT researchers are creating a shared quantum network test bed that will be used for developing and realistic testing of applications that take advantage of quantum science's potential to enable diverse, advanced communication, sensing, and computing systems.
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.
The processing board for the new graph processor is shown.
embedded computing
A prototype of a new graph processor has been shown to handle big data as efficiently as a supercomputer.
