Mercury Systems Receives $8.5M Order from U.S. Navy for DRFM Jammers
ANDOVER, Mass. — Mercury Systems Inc. has received an $8.5 million follow-on order against its recently announced $152 million 5-year sole-source basic ordering agreement (BOA) to deliver advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the U.S. Navy, the company announced in an Aug. 21 release.
The order was received in the company’s fiscal 2017 fourth 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.”
