Mercury Computer Systems Delivers Radar Processing Subsystems and Integration Services to Leading International Prime for Next-Generation Maritime Radar

February 18, 2010

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY), a leading provider of open, embedded, high-performance computing systems, software, and services for image, sensor, and signal processing applications, announced delivery of its network-enabled radar processing subsystems and comprehensive integration services to a leading international prime, for its next-generation maritime radar to be deployed on surface fleet vessels and aircraft carriers.

Mercury’s Services and Systems Integration (SSI) team integrated Mercury and third-party components to deliver standards-based subsystems using its VXS high-density processing modules and multicomputing software suite, combined with the Serial Front Panel Data Port sensor interface and the RapidIO® switch. As a result, the fully open subsystems will help to minimize customer risk and accelerate the customer’s time to deployment.

“Our customer’s next-generation radar is designed to meet the stringent size, weight and power, or SWaP requirements of the system it will replace, and to improve the performance of their customer’s primary sensing capability, particularly when operating in a complex littoral, or shoreline environment,” said Brian Hoerl, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Advanced Computing Solutions at Mercury Computer Systems. “Mercury’s SSI team successfully met our customer’s SWaP requirements and aggressive schedule, delivering network-enabled radar subsystems that preserve the customer’s software investment and ensure a migration path for future technology insertions.”
