Group 86--Summer Research Program Intern--RF Systems

Date: Apr 9, 2024

Location: Lexington, MA, US

Company: MIT Lincoln Laboratory


The RF Technology Group develops and demonstrates innovative radio-frequency (RF) technologies and integrated subsystems as solutions to emerging national security needs in radar, electronic warfare, signals intelligence (SIGINT), and special communications. To execute its RF research and development mission, the group develops and tests novel RF solutions at the device and semiconductor level up through the full RF subsystem level, with an emphasis on highly integrated, small-form-factor RF subsystems. The group collaboratively interacts with research groups across the Laboratory to take projects from initial concept stage, through simulation and analysis, to design and prototyping, and finally to field demonstration.

Group 86 - Summer Research Program Intern


The RF Technology Group has exciting opportunities to work on a wide array of projects associated with cutting-edge RF systems as part of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Summer Research Program. Depending on a candidate’s background and interests, there are opportunities in all aspects of RF system design.
