Mercury Systems Inc. announced it received a $2.1 million follow-on order for SWaP-optimized modules with pre-integrated, custom-engineered signal processing techniques from a leading aerospace and defense company. This order provides continuing support of engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) efforts for a lifecycle extension to a successful legacy electronic warfare (EW) system. These EMD initiatives will enhance overall system performance while incorporating additional functionality and capabilities. The order was booked in the company’s fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and is expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.

Mercury Systems is a recognized leader in the development and commercialization of pre-integrated electronic warfare solutions that deliver a strategic and tactical advantage to military forces operating in heavily contested electromagnetic environments. The company leverages modular open system architectures to provide an affordable and highly agile hardware upgrade path to address the uncertain threat environment of tomorrow. Additionally, Mercury’s world-class engineering team streamlines the development of advanced EW processing techniques to minimize program risk and potential cost overruns.

“Receiving this order further validates Mercury’s leadership role in the development of electronic warfare solutions successfully countering the technological advances of our adversaries,” said Brian Perry, president of Mercury Defense Systems. “We are honored to provide our warfighters around the globe with assured long-term supply continuity of the most sophisticated capabilities required to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum.”
