Mercury Systems wins US defence work
Mercury Systems has received $9.2 million in orders from a defence prime contractor for rugged rackmount servers to be used in an airborne surveillance application.
The orders were booked within the company's FY19 third quarter and FY20 first quarter, and are expected to be shipped over the coming quarters.
‘We work closely with customers to understand and fulfill their unique application requirements,’ Scott Orton, vice president and general manager of Mercury's Trusted Mission Solutions group, said.
‘In collaboration with a leading prime contractor, we designed our airborne servers to meet the unique requirements of the airborne cabin environment while optimising performance, mitigating risk, and minimising long-term costs. As a leading manufacturer of rugged rackmount servers, we continue to develop reliable solutions that meet or exceed customer expectations.’
Mercury’s Rugged Enterprise Servers are deployed in support of a range of surface, subsurface, ground and airborne applications.
They feature commercial off-the-shelf technologies, and provide resilience to shock, dust, vibration and extreme temperatures, ensuring availability in space-constrained, harsh environments.
