MIT Lincoln Laboratory Group 106--Summer Research Program Intern in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Active Optical Systems Group’s mission is to establish a laser radar center of excellence through development of advanced laser radar technology. One of the major research thrusts in this pursuit is implementation and application of three-dimensional laser radars employing novel receiver technology featuring arrays of detectors that are individually sensitive to single photons. The group is currently addressing the development and operation of airborne and ground-based 3D laser radars, along with data collection, data exploitation, and simulation and modeling efforts for various applications. The group is also pursuing significant efforts in the development of coherent laser radar, including adaption of advanced radar techniques to the optical regime, pushing the bandwidth of coherent systems into the terahertz regime, and using photon-counting detector arrays in coherent receivers. The goals of these efforts range from laboratory demonstrations to development of field-deployable systems. The group is also a world-leader in advanced passive receivers based on novel, high bandwidth digital focal plane arrays used on state-of-the-art EO/IR systems.
