Mercury Systems Inc. announced it received a $3.8 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for state-of-the-art RF subsystems that are integrated into an advanced airborne electronic warfare (EW) system. The orders were booked in the company's fiscal 2018 second quarter and are expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.

Mercury's comprehensive portfolio of commercial RF and microwave solutions include high performance components, integrated multi-function modules and pre-integrated subsystems ruggedized for the harsh operating environments typically encountered by military forces. With advanced design and simulation tools, the company has a proven record of commercializing highly differentiated RF and microwave innovations in the smallest and most rugged form factors required for defense applications.

"We are truly honored to receive this follow-on order for miniaturized RF subsystems supporting a military program of critical importance to our national security interests," said Kevin Beals, VP and general manager of Mercury's RF and Microwave group. "In addition to providing affordable, long-term supply of these critical RF subsystems, we continue to make significant investments to commercialize electronic warfare solutions addressing tomorrow's threat environment."
