Mercury Systems launches new digital transceiver for EW applications

Andover, MA-based Mercury Systems, Inc. announced on May 24 the EnsembleSeries DCM6111 6U VPX digital transceiver, the latest addition to its portfolio of digital processing solutions. The new transceiver seamlessly incorporates the company’s BuiltSECURE technology, thereby enabling security architects to rapidly develop and deploy highly customized system security engineering (SSE) to detect and mitigate adversarial attacks. Designed in accordance with OpenVPX standards at Mercury’s AS9100D-certified facility in Huntsville, AL, the new product is the ideal processing solution for advanced electronic warfare applications operating in harsh and hostile environments.

The DCM6111 transceiver incorporates advanced, high-speed analog to digital converter (ADC) and digital to analog converter (DAC) circuitry while providing multichannel, ultra-low latency performance. By leveraging OpenVPX architectures, Mercury delivers an agile, cost-effective upgrade path enabling military forces to maintain a dominant position on the electromagnetic battlefield. Recognizing that these advanced capabilities may be exposed to adversarial reverse engineering attempts while deployed in hostile environments, Mercury has preconfigured its BuiltSECURE technology into the new transceiver. This built-in SSE capability enables turnkey or personalized security solutions to be quickly configured and deployed to enable mission success.

“Today’s product announcement exemplifies how Mercury delivers value to defense prime contractors by skillfully blending our deep domain expertise in analog and digital integration with agile security architectures,” said Charlie Hudnall, vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Embedded Sensor Products group. “Our military forces around the globe can confidently rely on Mercury’s broad portfolio of future-proof electronic warfare solutions to protect our warfighters and our national interests.”
