MIT seeks to invest $450m at Hanscom

10-year plan would expand Lincoln Lab

WASHINGTON - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is proposing to build a $450 million research facility at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford in a long-term venture that would reinforce the base’s high-tech mission without requiring new federal spending, according to government officials.

The 10-year plan would enhance the value of the base, where weapons and other defense research is conducted, at a time when Massachusetts officials worry Hanscom could be a victim in a new round of cost-saving base closures.
