US Navy orders Mercury Systems' DRFM jammers

20th August 2013 - 12:20 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Mercury Defense Systems will supply advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the US Navy under a $2.3 million contract announced on 19 August. The jammers will support US Navy and US Air Force requirements.

The order is part of the firm-fixed-price, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract originally received by KOR Electronics (now Mercury Defense Systems) in March 2010, which has been recently extended by the US Navy for an additional 63 units for a total contract value of $56.7 million. 

Kevin Carnino, president, Mercury Defense Systems, said: ‘This award is a further acknowledgement of the company’s continuing effort to support the warfighter. Under this contract we will be producing a subset of our latest radar jamming technology. 

‘We are anticipating an additional release of a new multi-year IDIQ contract later this year, and will aggressively compete to supply that requirement as well. For over twenty years, Mercury Defense Systems’ DRFM products have been used for self-protection, vulnerability assessment, training and radar environment simulation. Our successful performance under firm fixed price contracting is the cornerstone of our business.’
