MIT Lincoln Laboratory offers scientists and engineers the opportunity to work on challenging problems critical to national security. A Department of Defense
federally funded research and development center (FFRDC), Lincoln Laboratory has a focused commitment to research and development, with an emphasis
on building prototypes and demonstrating operational systems under live test conditions that meet real-world requirements.
Three areas constitute the core of the work performed at Lincoln Laboratory: sensors, information extraction (signal processing and embedded computing),
and communications, all supported by a broad research base in advanced electronics.
