Technology Office

Promoting Innovative R&D for Today and the Future

Investments cultivated and managed by the Technology Office support the development of new Mission Critical Technology for national security. Impactful projects in Emerging Technology, many of which take a decade or more to come to fruition, push the very frontiers of technology development. We also focus on fostering Innovation and Collaboration, both of which are essential to sustaining long-term technical excellence and relevance. The Artificial Intelligence Group, under the direction of the Technology Office, was recently established to advance R&D in AI being conducted across all Laboratory areas to expand capabilities to meet a broad spectrum of needs.

Microfluidic devices for performing various assays were created with the tools in Lincoln Laboratory's Technology Office Innovation Laboratory.

Technology Office Investment Focus

The Technology Office enables the development of technologies that address long-term challenges and emerging issues within Lincoln Laboratory’s core mission areas. To maintain an awareness of evolving national security problems and applicable technologies, the office interacts regularly with the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering and other government agencies.
