MIT Lincoln Laboratory

The nation’s satellites perform important civil, scientific, and national defense functions such as navigation, communications, weather forecasting, astronomical observations, and surveillance. As space becomes increasingly congested and contested, maintaining awareness of all man-made objects around the Earth is critical for ensuring the safe and effective operation of U.S. satellites. The Advanced Sensors and Techniques Group develops and operates electro-optical (EO) and radio frequency (RF) sensors and resilient space systems critical to maintaining this awareness of the space domain. We develop and operate some of the world’s most exquisite optical and radar systems from our main campus in Lexington, MA, with additional opportunities at locations including the Lincoln Space Surveillance Complex (LSSC) in Westford, MA, the Experimental Test Site in Socorro, NM, and the U. S. Army Reagan Test Site at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

Our team regularly develops capabilities from fundamental concepts and sees them through to successful operation. Recent examples include transmitter and receiver upgrades on the world’s most sensitive radars, integration and operation of a state-of-the-art space telescope, development of advanced signal processing techniques, development of fully automated high-resolution image processing capabilities, demonstration of high-precision multi-sensor data fusion, and design and demonstration of long-baseline coherent receive apertures.
