Abstract For nearly sixty years, MIT Lincoln Laboratory has fulfilled its mission of providing advanced technology for our national security by anticipating the nation's challenges and evolving its mission areas and programs to meet those emerging challenges. This year, the Laboratory restructured three divisions to focus research and development in areas that are increasingly important to the nation: homeland protection; cyber security; and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems. The Laboratory's new Homeland Protection and Air Traffic Control Division will concentrate on developing and expanding the Laboratory's work on chemical and biological defense, border security, and the safety of the National Airspace System. The new ISR and Tactical Systems Division's emphasis will be on developing systems for surface and undersea ISR, counterterrorism, and tactical operations. The restructured Communication Systems and Cyber Security Division will continue to enhance the capabilities of the nation's defense communication systems and will strengthen programs to protect the nation's networks and critical infrastructure. This annual report will highlight some of the Laboratory's new work in these areas. The Laboratory is continuing work on its large-scale hardware and software programs, such as the Haystack Ultrawideband Satellite Imaging Radar, the Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration, and the Missile Alternative Range Target Instrument. To support the development and integration of such systems, the Engineering Division began investing in new equipment to improve hardware fabrication and integration, and to add new capabilities in printed circuit board assembly, precision machining, and prototyping. In addition, the Laboratory is in the midst of a three-year recapitalization of the Microelectronics Laboratory to enable improved wafer processing and advanced packaging.
