MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Roi-Namur
Reagan Test Site, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands

Lincoln Laboratory serves as the scientific advisor to the Reagan Test Site at the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll installation located about 2,500 miles WSW of Hawaii. Twenty staff members, accompanied by their families, work at this site, serving two- to three-year tours of duty. The site’s radars and optical and telemetry sensors support ballistic missile defense testing and space surveillance. The radar systems provide test facilities for radar technology development and for the development of ballistic missile defense techniques. The Laboratory also supports upgrades to the command-and-control infrastructure of the range to include applications of real-time discrimination and decision aids developed as a result of research at the Laboratory. - SOURCE - MIT
