Mercury Systems has received a follow-on order for the delivery of integrated subsystems in support of the naval electronic warfare (EW) application.

Valued at $6.7m, the follow-on order has been placed by an unnamed defence prime contractor and was booked in the company’s first quarter of the fiscal year 2019.

Under the agreement, the company will be responsible for providing the customer with custom-engineered, high-performance subsystems equipped with integrated radio frequency (RF) and digital microelectronics.

Expected to be delivered over 2019’s financial quarters, the integrated subsystems will be used for naval electronic warfare operations.

“The integrated subsystems will be used for naval electronic warfare operations.”

Mercury Systems embedded sensor processing group vice-president and general manager Neal Austin said: “Receiving this order from our valued customer exemplifies Mercury’s market-leading position in the design and manufacturing of affordable microelectronics solutions spanning the RF and digital domains.

“We are fully committed to supporting the US warfighter with commercial innovations delivering critical electronic warfare information required to make timely and accurate operational decisions.”

The company focuses on the development and commercialisation of a range of EW solutions that have been designed to reliably operate for ground, sea and airborne applications even in the most adverse environmental conditions.

These solutions have been specifically designed by the company to densely integrate both analogue and digital technologies using open architecture standards.

This helps reduce the risk of schedule of cost overruns while providing a cost-effective scope for system upgradeability in the future.
