Description

A key component of Lincoln Laboratory's mission as a federally funded research and development center is the transfer of its technology to the government and industry. This technology transfer ensures that the U.S. military has access to innovative technical advancements and strengthens U.S. business competitiveness in the world economy.

Technology transfer encompasses several distinct but related areas. These include government-sponsor-directed transition of technologies to operational users and to industry, as well as collaborative R&D with commercial and nonprofit partners.

Mission

As a Department of Defense Research and Development Laboratory, MIT Lincoln Laboratory conducts research and development aimed at solutions to problems critical to national security. In 2011, the Laboratory celebrated its 60th anniversary of service to the nation.

The areas that constitute the core of the work performed at Lincoln Laboratory are sensors, information extraction (signal processing and embedded computing), communications, and integrated sensing and decision support, all supported by a broad research base in advanced electronics.

Research at the Laboratory includes projects in air and missile defense, space surveillance technology, tactical systems, biological and chemical defense, homeland protection, communications, cyber security, and information sciences. The Laboratory takes projects from the initial concept stage, through simulation and analysis, to design and prototyping, and finally to field demonstration.

Technical staff perform tests on an unmanned aerial vehicle at the RF System Test Facility.

Two of the Laboratory's principal technical objectives are (1) the development of components and systems for experiments, engineering measurements, and tests under field operating conditions and (2) the dissemination of information to the government, academia, and industry.

Lincoln Laboratory also undertakes government-sponsored, nondefense projects in areas such as the development of systems the Federal Aviation Administration relies on to improve air-traffic control and air safety, systems that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration uses in weather surveillance, and systems the National Aeronautics and Space Administration employs in its space science missions.

The Laboratory is organized into eight technical divisions. While each division has specific focus areas, the Laboratory's mission-oriented work supports cross-divisional, multidisciplinary collaborations.
