Mercury Systems has received a $3.2 million follow-on order from a leading defense contractor for its BuiltSECURE ruggedized memory devices, which are being integrated into an advanced airborne military computing system. As with the follow-on business for multichip modules from a leading defense contractor (see “Mercury Systems Supplies RF Modules for EW System” on mwrf.com), this order was booked in the company’s fiscal 2018 second quarter and is expected to ship over the next several quarters.

“Receiving this BuiltSECURE memory order from a prominent defense prime contract reaffirms Memory’s leadership role in the design and manufacturing of commercial microelectronics in a highly secure and trusted environment,” says Iain Mackie, vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Microelectronics Secure Solutions group. “We are honored to provide long-term supply continuity of high-speed, SWaP-optimized memory devices enabling the success of our military forces in the harshest operating environments,” adds Mackie. The hardware is manufactured in Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC), a secure Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) trusted facility in Phoenix, Ariz.
