Mercury Systems has received a $16.1 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for integrated RF/digital subsystems. The work supports an advanced naval electronic application using Mercury’s modular open systems architecture (MOSA). The order was booked late in Mercury’s fiscal 2018 third quarter, with $8 million of the order already having been shipped in Mercury’s fiscal 2018 fourth quarter, and the balance expected to be shipped over the next several quarters. The MOSA approach (see figure), which includes OpenVPX and OpenRFM function capabilities, makes possible low-risk solutions for various threat environments.

“Receiving this follow-on order is proof of our commitment as a commercial supplier to deliver affordable, pre-integrated subsystems powering the most sophisticated electronic support applications,” said Didier Thibaud, Mercury’s executive vice president and COO. “As our adversaries attempt to exploit the electromagnetic spectrum against us, we must continue supporting our warfighters with agile, high-performance capabilities required to advance our military interests around the globe.”
