Description

Lincoln Laboratory's 3900-square-foot hardware-integration facility supports the rapid integration and fielding of specialized systems. It was designed to accommodate an increased emphasis on rapid prototyping projects by providing the appropriate tools, collaborative environment, and required infrastructure. This facility, spread over two floors, maximizes collaboration between team members and minimizes the time to iterate through the design-build-test cycle by co-locating spaces for fabrication and integration. The facility is divided into areas for system integration, electronic assembly, additive manufacturing (3D printing), and conventional machining. The flexibility to reconfigure the space to adapt to a wide variety of projects is a key feature. The facility can accommodate the development of about five to eight systems, all with concept-to-system delivery timelines of less than 12 months. It is also used to explore new approaches to rapid system development.
