Mercury Recruited for Secure Solid-State Drives

Secure solid-state drives are the basis for Mercury Systems receiving a follow-on order worth $3.9 million from a leading defense contractor.

Mercury Systems has received a follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for custom secure solid-state drives for an airborne mission management application. The order, which is valued at $3.9 million, was booked in the company’s fiscal 2018 second quarter and is expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.

Mercury’s self-encrypting storage devices are designed and built at its Advanced Microelectronics Center in Phoenix, Ariz. The secure memory devices leverage the technology of the company’s ARMOR cryptographic engine, which uses advanced algorithms to achieve high-level security. The firm’s portfolio of secure data devices support a wide range of industry requirements and incorporate self-destruct capabilities in the most sophisticated memory storage devices.

“Our military forces deployed in hostile threat environments deserve the most secure data storage solution without compromising affordability,” said Charlie Leader, senior vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronics Solutions group. “We are privileged to receive this follow-on order to support both our customer and our nation’s warfighters.

“As a leading provider of secure and safety-critical solutions addressing the defense industry’s most challenging problems,” Leader added, “Mercury remains steadfast in its commitment to support our military’s forces with affordable and highly agile commercial technologies.”
