Modern aerospace and defense platforms, especially in the growing field of unmanned vehicles, need more processing capability for compute-intense applications including AI, sensor processing, and fusion in avionics, that can be easily refreshed with new technology to meet new threats while keeping costs down and speeding time to market. Simplifying integration using an open architecture approach facilitates better affordability, scalability, interoperability, and sustainability across the entire military embedded ecosystem.
ANDOVER, Mas. Mercury Systems, Inc. announced that it has received a $7.4 million order from a leading defense prime contractor for active matrix LCD (AMLCD) modules to be used in a large area multi-function display cockpit application.
See more, detect more, and decode more – these are the primary requirements being asked of unmanned systems in the military, and proprietary hardware and software can make achieving those goals a challenge. This is why Army, Navy, and Air Force leaders mandated a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) for all new programs and upgrades. MOSA examples include the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Technical Standard and the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) Technical Standard. These initiatives among others, aim to offer commonality of hardware to enable easier and more affordable technology insertion in unmanned systems.
ANDOVER, Mass. Mercury Systems has won a $165 million firm-fixed-price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract award from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) for secure flight-data recorders in support of the secure mission data systems (SMDS) on the USAF's F-16 fleet.

This week’s product, the Mercury Systems’ SOSA aligned Jade 5585 250 MHz A/D with Virtex UltraScale+ HBM FPGA - 3U VPX board, is an 8-channel, high-speed data converter with programmable DDCs (digital downconverters). It is suitable for connection to HF or IF ports of a communications or radar system. Its built-in data capture feature offers a turnkey solution as well as a platform for developing and deploying custom FPGA-processing IP.
Electronic warfare systems demand multifunctionality and integration in RF and microwave designs - StoryFebruary 07, 2022
Radio frequency (RF) and microwave technology used in the military is ever-evolving and necessarily acclimating to the congested digital battlefield. These solutions need to be fluent in the language of electronic warfare (EW). Demands for multifunctionality, digitization, and increased sensitivity are pushing designers to add these capabilities that warfighters require when translating electronic noise into actionable information.
