"Innovation drives our company, and supporting STEM initiatives that nurture tomorrow's standout engineers is a solid investment in our industry. L3 is a data-driven, inclusive culture, and we continue to build on our legacy of supporting STEM education to deliver next-generation technologies to our customers," said Paul De Lia, L3's Vice President and Chief Technology Officer.

The students can appreciate the increasingly competitive role technology is playing in bringing innovation to market quickly and reliably."

Seniors work with MIT faculty, students, researchers and Lincoln Lab staff to develop their skills and solve real-world technology challenges in a hands-on learning environment. Projects for this summer's program include designing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), exploring embedded security and hardware hacking, designing and launching a miniaturized satellite – called a CubeSat – with an imaging payload, and building a UAV synthetic aperture radar, among several others.
