Developing technologies that counter threats to U.S. forces
We are advancing the development of tactical airborne and counterterrorism systems through systems analysis, rapid prototyping, and detailed, realistic instrumented tests.
Tactical Systems Groups
Airborne Sensor Test Bed
A uniquely modified jet is an important asset for making important measurements of tactical aircraft.
Air Vehicle Survivability Evaluation
For more than 40 years, Lincoln Laboratory has provided the Air Force with assessments on potential technologies for assuring the survivability of Air Force aircraft.
GPS Support, Test, and Research Laboratory
We conduct research on the performance and vulnerability of GPS devices embedded in military and civilian systems.
Small UAS Initiative
Small unmanned systems are achieving new proficiencies in autonomy.
