Mercury Systems Receives RF Microelectronics Contract for Advanced Airborne Tactical Radar Application

The RF and Microwave group of Mercury Systems has been selected by a leading defense prime contractor to supply SWaP-optimized, custom-engineered RF converter subsystems for a state-of-the-art airborne tactical radar system. The company received an initial $3.5 million order to commence development, which was booked in its fiscal 2018 second quarter.

The announcement reaffirms Mercury's leadership in RF sensor technologies and advanced manufacturing capabilities. Its next-generation business model enabled this strategic design win opportunity with the valued customer.

Mercury's portfolio of commercial RF and microwave solutions is perfectly suited to address the demands of next-generation radar systems requiring the industry's most sophisticated designs embedded in the smallest, most lightweight form factors. All of the company's advanced components, densely integrated modules and multifunction subsystems are designed to ensure consistent and predictable performance under the harshest conditions encountered by military forces in high threat environments.

To ensure long-term and affordable supply continuity, Mercury has established two Advanced Microelectronics Centers (AMCs) with leading-edge design tools and state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities dedicated to RF and microwave design and scalable production.
