U.S. Navy Selects Mercury to Deliver Electronic Warfare


ANDOVER, Mass., March 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a technology company that delivers mission-critical processing power to the edge, today announced that it received a five-year, $243.8 million, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to deliver rapidly reprogrammable electronic attack training subsystems for the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division. These subsystems build on more than 25 years of test and training technology from the Mercury Processing Platform to bring the most advanced, near-peer jamming and electronic warfare capabilities to U.S. pilot training organizations.

The most effective way to prepare pilots and aircrews for real-world combat environments is through training scenarios that represent near-peer threat capabilities to the greatest possible extent. Mercury’s proven digital RF memory (DRFM)-based reactive jamming subsystems allow training planners to quickly reprogram missions for different aircraft via an intuitive software interface and simultaneously emulate multiple National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC)-validated threats. Mercury has provided radar jamming capabilities to the Navy’s Airborne Threat Simulation Organization (ATSO) since 1987 and has delivered more than 600 systems over the past decade.

Mercury received the initial $20.3 million DRFM production order from ATSO. The new contract also includes ongoing engineering services to continually update the system’s threat library to stay ahead of adversarial capabilities.

“The electronic warfare capabilities of near-peer adversaries are more sophisticated than ever before, and our combat pilots must train using technology that emulates the most advanced jamming threats,” said Roya Montakhab, GM of Mercury’s Platform Systems business unit. “We look forward to working with the Navy’s Airborne Threat Simulation Office to provide our pilots with a mission-critical advantage on the battlefield.”
