Mercury Systems Inc. announced it won a $22 million order from a major defense prime contractor for high performance airborne radar processing subsystems, another demonstration of the company’s leading capability in providing the most secure, innovative technology solutions for defense applications.

 “As a leading producer of secure radar processing subsystems for the aerospace and defense industries, Mercury Systems delivers the compute density and environmental protection that our customers demand for their next-generation airborne radar systems,” said Brian Hoerl, Mercury’s senior VP  of Global Sales. “Moreover, our leadership in open architecture technologies enables us to meet our customers’ requirements for lower cost, flexible, easily upgradeable subsystems across multiple platforms that keep our world safe and secure.”

Quickly developed, these processors were designed using Mercury’s sensor open system architecture (SOSA)-compatible building blocks that feature the latest data center processing power and scalability required by next-generation radars. This multi-year order was received in the company’s fiscal 2019 fourth quarter and is expected to be shipped over the next few years.
