Mercury Systems Inc., a leading high-tech commercial provider of more affordable secure and sensor processing subsystems powering today’s critical defense and intelligence applications, announced it has opened the second of four planned, world-class Mercury Innovation Centers – this one located at its corporate headquarters in Chelmsford, Mass. The first Mercury Innovation Center opened on April 18, 2014, at the company’s Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) in Hudson, N.H.

"The Mercury Innovation Centers are visible proof of how we bring our 'Innovation That Matters' corporate vision to life every day for our customers and the critical defense and intelligence applications we support," said Mark Aslett, president and CEO of Mercury Systems. "Mercury invests as much as 20 percent of revenue into research and development to help drive the industrywide adoption of open systems architectures and to support programs that are essential to our nation’s and allies’ defense. Our innovations have helped establish Mercury as the choice for affordable, commercially developed, open secure and sensor processing subsystems."

This newest Mercury Innovation Center is a showplace for the company’s advanced embedded and high-performance capabilities across the sensor processing chain, industry-leading thermal cooling solutions, and a wide range of state-of-the-art technologies and subsystems that are relied on by leading defense Prime contractors.

The company has already started the development of Mercury Innovation Centers at its Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) in West Caldwell, N.J., and at its Cypress, Calif., facility. Both are expected to be opened in 2015. For more information on Mercury Systems and the Mercury Innovation Centers, visit or contact the company at (866) 627-6951 or
