Mercury Systems has received a contract from a leading defense contractor worth $3.9 million to develop Next Generation Airborne Radar Processing Subsystems. These systems will go into production at Mercury Systems’ secure and trusted Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA)-accredited manufacturing plant. The company is looking forward to fulfilling the contract by the end of this year.
“The compute power and density needed by our customer’s next-generation radar requires our unique ability to package state-of-the-art processing power into compact modules that can withstand harsh shock and vibration environments,” said Joe Plunkett, Senior Director and General Manager for Mercury’s Sensor Processing Solutions group. “Our customer is leveraging Mercury’s proven packaging and liquid cooling technologies to achieve the processing speed, reliability, and ruggedness required for this highly scalable radar system.”
Mercury Systems is powering every small form factor processing subsystem by Intel’s Xeon® processors which are calibrated about data-centre functionality precision. Furthermore, they are packaged to be compatible with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA).
To mitigate on project’s risk, Mercury Systems will be leveraging its highly advanced and industry proven OpenVPX packaging and cooling technologies — they are developed to a technical readiness level of nine, also known as TRL-9 to deliver on high-performance and compute whenever required.
