Mercury Systems announced it received a $10 million award to provide an innovative pilot controller interface for a leading prime contractor’s airborne radio modernization program. The radio system, built specifically for missions that depend on beyond line-of-sight range, requires the space efficient, affordable and modular communications connection that Mercury’s processing solution delivers. The award was received in the company’s fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and is expected to be delivered over the next several years.

Why It Matters

As more and more data require processing and management, simplifying the communications control interface helps aircrews make mission-critical decisions more quickly and with confidence.

“Our customer depends on Mercury to help them solve their most safety-critical processing challenges,” said Jay Abendroth, vice president, Mercury Mission. “In delivering a communications management solution that is space efficient, reliable and upgradable, we are proud to play a role in supporting our customer’s desire to ensure pilot and mission safety.”
