Mercury Systems Receives Navy Order for DRFM Jammers
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Mercury Systems Inc. announced Dec. 22 that it received a $10.8 million follow-on order against its five-year sole-source basic ordering agreement to deliver advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the U.S. Navy.
The order was received in the company’s fiscal 2017 second quarter and is expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.
“This order reaffirms Mercury’s commitment to the advancement of DRFM hardware and software subsystems in support of the warfighter,” said Brian Perry, president, Mercury Defense Systems. “Our advanced jammers provide U.S. aircrews with exposure and training to ensure that the first time they encounter advanced electronic attack capabilities it is not in an actual combat environment. These jammer capabilities are critical for continued U.S. air superiority, particularly in light of new and evolving electronic warfare threats.”
