Mercury Systems Inc. celebrated the dedication of its expanded Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) in Huntsville, Ala. Congressman Mo Brooks; Col. Robert Barrie, Military Deputy, PEO Aviation; Donna McCrary of the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce; and Harrison Diamond from the Office of the Mayor joined senior Mercury executives for a ribbon cutting ceremony, reception and facility tour.

A state-of-the-art, 24,000 square foot design and assembly facility for RF and digital processing technologies including 5,000 square feet of lab space with secure production capabilities, the expanded AMC provides redundant and complementary capabilities with the company's existing AMCs located in Hudson, N.H, Phoenix, Ariz. and West Caldwell, N.J. The combined capabilities in each facility provide "one-stop shopping" for defense prime customers who need to reduce their supply chain complexity and lower risk.

“Our AS9100D-certified Huntsville facility now has even more capability, enabling us to continue providing very advanced, leading mixed-signal processing solutions that support our Prime customers in the development of the next-generation radar, electronic warfare and ELINT systems critical to maintaining dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum,” said Neil Austin, VP and general manager of Mercury’s Embedded Sensor Processing group. “This expansion is part of our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with scalable and redundant design and trusted manufacturing facilities coupled with best-in-industry innovation and technology.”

“The expansion of this facility further reinforces Alabama’s commitment to driving economic growth and prosperity through the creation of sustainable, high-quality jobs,” said Congressman Brooks. “I congratulate the team at Mercury Systems for this truly impressive facility, and I am proud of the Alabama citizens now supporting our military forces with trusted defense microelectronics.”

Mercury’s AMCs are a key component for the realization of the company’s next-generation business model. Through affordable and highly differentiated sensor chain solutions, defense prime contractors can simultaneously secure their supply chain operations, minimize technical risk and meet program schedule and budget demands.
