Mercury Systems, Inc., a leading provider of affordable, commercially developed, open sensor processing systems and services for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced that its Mercury Defense Systems (MDS) subsidiary has received a $2 million follow-on order against its five year sole source basic ordering agreement (BOA) to deliver advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the U.S. Navy. The order is expected to be shipped by the end of the company's fiscal 2016 thirdquarter.
"This order reaffirms MDS’s commitment to the advancement of DRFM hardware and software subsystems in support of the warfighter,” said Brian Perry, president, Mercury Defense Systems. “Our advanced jammers provide U.S. aircrews with exposure and training to ensure that the first time they encounter advanced electronic attack capabilities it is not in an actual combat environment. These jammer capabilities are critical for continued U.S. air superiority.”
