Mercury's ultra-compact tuners help counter adversarial threats
ANDOVER, Mass., June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced a new family of low-power, ultra-compact tuner modules purpose-built to support customers’ spectrum processing applications such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), direction finding (DF) and test and measurement. The high-performance design and compact size of the new AM9018 and AM9030 modules brings faster broadband RF processing to mission-critical operations in harsh environments, where space is at a premium such as in small ISR drones and man-portable SIGINT systems.
Why It Matters:
“Our customers require broadband performance in a compact size for their processing-intensive SIGINT applications like electronics intelligence (ELINT),” said Clay Couey, senior director and general manager, Mercury Microwave. “By developing our own monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) devices, we can design very small tuners – approximately the size of a few credit cards – that enable customers to build signal collection platforms compact enough to fit in a UAV, directly supporting mission needs to counter adversarial threats.”
Mercury’s new, SWaP-optimized RF tuners leverage the Company’s custom MMIC design capability resulting from their recent Atlanta Micro acquisition. These custom semiconductor devices, available as stand-alone products, allow maximum space savings and broadband performance.
Built with MMIC technology for maximum SWaP optimization
Mercury envisions, creates, and delivers innovative technology solutions purpose-built to meet their customers’ most pressing high-tech needs. Visit atlantamicro.com for more information or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or [email protected]
