Mercury Computer Systems Wins Contract to Supply Signal and Image Processing Capabilities for Multi-mode Radar Program


Innovative, open architecture-based building blocks help meet aggressive costs targets for advanced shipborne and land-based active phased array radar system.

CHELMSFORD, Mass. - Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mc.com), a trusted provider of commercially developed ISR subsystems, confirmed that it has been awarded a contract from a global supplier of advanced communication and navigation solutions for an advanced signal and image processing engine. Mercury's technology will perform critical computationally-intensive functions in the customer's sophisticated land-based and shipborne active phased array radar system.

"This long-standing customer knows it can rely on Mercury to provide the technology needed to migrate an existing radar system from a closed, proprietary design to an open system with built-in application portability," said Didier Thibaud, senior vice president and general manager of Mercury Computer Systems' Advanced Computing Solutions business unit.

Mercury will deliver innovative open architecture-based processing modules designed to solve highly challenging computing problems and meet strict requirements for aggressive cost targets including board-level processing density and a low board count per system metric. The modules leverage Mercury's standards-based building blocks and include a VITA 41-compliant switch board that provides full inter-board serial RapidIO and Gigabit Ethernet connections in a VXS system, and a unit that combines high-performance Power Architecture(TM) processing technology with balanced I/O from dual PMC/XMC sites and the scalable serial RapidIO® interconnect.
