(Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research)
(survey of near-Earth objects)

LINEAR (for Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research) is an astronomical survey for near-Earth asteroids, begun in the late 1990s by the US Air Force and Lincoln Laboratory. It has discovered over 200000 SSSBs and some comets.

Beginning in 2014, LINEAR used the 3.5m purpose-built Space Surveillance Telescope (SST) which aimed at tracking man-made space objects, but continued the search for near-Earth objects.
