Mercury Systems has received an additional $5.5 million in follow-on orders to deliver advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the U.S. Navy.

According to Mark Bruington, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury Defense Systems’ Electronic Warfare and Mission Solutions (EMS) group, the orders reflect the U.S. Navy’s continuing commitment to the advancement of the company’s electronic warfare test and training capabilities. According to him, the recent electronic attacks by known adversaries have sparked a renewed commitment to maintaining U.S. superiority in electronic warfare. Mercury’s ongoing efforts to design, develop and produce innovative DRFM jammers directly supports the growing need to effectively train U.S. warfighters and keep U.S. electronic protection technology at the leading edge.
