Mercury Systems has received a five-year, $243.8 million, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract to deliver rapidly reprogrammable electronic attack training subsystems for the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division. These subsystems build on more than 25 years of test and training technology from the Mercury Processing Platform to bring advanced, near-peer jamming and electronic warfare capabilities to U.S. pilot training organizations.

Mercury’s digital RF memory (DRFM)-based reactive jamming subsystems allow training planners to reprogram missions for different aircraft via a software interface and simultaneously emulate multiple National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC)-validated threats. Mercury has provided radar jamming capabilities to the Navy’s Airborne Threat Simulation Organization (ATSO) since 1987 and has delivered more than 600 systems over the past decade.

Mercury received the initial $20.3 million DRFM production order from ATSO. The new contract also includes ongoing engineering services to continually update the system’s threat library.

“The electronic warfare capabilities of near-peer adversaries are more sophisticated than ever before, and our combat pilots must train using technology that emulates the most advanced jamming threats,” said Roya Montakhab, GM of Mercury’s Platform Systems business unit.
