Mercury Systems, Inc. announced it received a $4.3 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor to provide radar subsystems and related digital processing technologies for a missile defense application. The order was booked in the company’s fiscal 2017 fourth quarter.

The radar signal processing subsystem is based on an open systems architecture using heterogeneous processors, the Linux operating system and the Message Passing Interface (MPI) API. The subsystem performs all the signal processing functions including beamforming, pulse compression, Doppler processing and target detection.

“We are extremely pleased to continue our relationship with this longstanding customer,” said Didier Thibaud, Mercury’s Executive vice president and chief operating officer. “Mercury’s commitment to providing the most advanced and reliable signal processing systems and architecture has ensured our continued participation in this mission-critical defense program.”
