ANDOVER, Mass., July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, announced it has been selected by Leonardo UK to provide multiple radar test and simulation systems to factory-test Leonardo’s innovative E-scan radar. The Company will also provide additional systems to support, maintain and prepare deployed aircraft for specific mission profiles using Mercury’s flexible programming environment. This contract follows a previous one awarded by Leonardo to Mercury in 2019 to design and manufacture the next generation of processing technology for Leonardo’s E-Scan radar being developed in the UK.

Why It Matters
New radar technologies, such as synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging, have dramatically increased the complexity of radar testing. With Mercury’s radar environment simulator solutions, radar systems can be tested, validated and optimized in the safety and security of the lab, saving customers money and time. Customers get more accurate results faster, which lowers cost and ensures aircrew safety.

“Mercury is proud to be supporting Leonardo UK in developing the next generation of adaptive and highly capable airborne radars,” said Paul Tanner, vice president, international growth. “Partnering closely with Intel to provide significantly increased processing capabilities using the very latest silicon technologies, Mercury continues to be a trusted provider for Leonardo UK supporting the implementation of highly advanced, dependable and agile airborne sensing.”

Mercury envisions, creates, and delivers innovative technology solutions purpose-built to meet its customers’ most pressing high-tech needs. For more information, visit mrcy.com or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or [email protected].
