Mercury Systems Receives $8.4 Million Order from U.S. Navy for Subsystem Engineering Development
ANDOVER, Mass. — Mercury Systems Inc. has received an $8.4 million follow-on order against a previously announced $152 million five-year, sole-source basic ordering agreement to complete subsystem engineering development in support of the U.S. Navy’s training environment, the company announced in an Aug. 9 release. The order was received in the company's fiscal 2018 fourth quarter, and engineering development is expected to be completed over the next several quarters.
“This order further validates Mercury’s leadership role in the agile development of sophisticated subsystems critical to the success of the U.S. warfighter,” said Brian Perry, president, Mercury Defense Systems. “These innovative subsystems will allow our aircrews to experience new adversarial electronic attack capabilities in a safe environment, thereby gaining an advantage in the event of actual combat. As we continue to engage with our enemies on the electromagnetic battlefield, these capabilities are critical to maintain our position of air superiority.”
