Mercury Systems receives $8.4M RF microelectronics subsystem order

Mercury Systems, Inc. of Andover, MA announced on August 28 that it received an $8.4 million order from a leading defense prime contractor for precision-engineered radio frequency (RF) converter subsystems for an advanced airborne electronic protection application. The order was booked in the company’s fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and is expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.

According to the company, Mercury’s miniaturization and ruggedization capabilities are ideally suited to address the needs of SWaP-constrained applications while delivering the highest levels of performance to military forces. In addition to its expertise in microelectronics design and manufacturing, Mercury also streamlines the development and implementation of EW processing techniques.

“As our adversaries continue seeking new ways to exploit the electromagnetic spectrum against our warfighters, it is imperative that we empower our military forces with the most advanced EW capabilities on the ground, at sea and in the air,” said Charlie Leader, senior vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronics Solutions group. “We are honored to support our valued defense prime contractor customers and the U.S. warfighter with densely integrated, high-performance RF microelectronics designed and manufactured in our Advanced Microelectronics Centers.”
