Mercury Systems (MRCY - Free Report) was recently awarded a $25-million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor to support an advanced naval electronic support application with its integrated radio frequency (RF) and digital subsystems. The order is expected to be shipped over the next several quarters.

The continued flow of orders highlights Mercury’s commitment to develop compelling advanced RF conversion and digital signal processing technologies and make them more accessible to the defense industry.

Modernization in radar, EW and C4I is high, providing the company with new opportunities in weapon systems, space, avionics processing, and mission computing and embedded rugged services.

Moreover, Mercury’s domain expertise in analog and digital integration has helped it build a solid business relationship with defense prime contractors for a long time.

Efforts in Embedded Computing

Its embedded computing servers, including the suite of EnsembleSeries blades, have delivered processing solutions with long lifecycles, higher performance, environmental resiliency, interoperability and SWaP optimization for 35 years.

Notably, the company’s range of space-qualified RF and microwave solutions has been adopted in every successful mission to Mars.

Per Mordor Intelligence, the global embedded computing systems market is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.6% over the period of 2019 to 2025. This is promising for companies like Mercury with a long-standing foothold in the industry.

A Competitive Edge
