Mercury Advanced Microelectronic Centers

Mercury Advanced Microelectronics Center 

NEW! Take a tour of our Advanced Microelectronics Centers.

Our Advanced Microelectronics Centers (AMC) in Hudson, NH and West Caldwell, NJ offer state-of-the-art design and manufacturing RF and microwave capabilities. Mercury has invested in our AMCs to help drive innovations in RF and Microwave technologies that can be leveraged by prime contractors to deliver critical new capabilities to our warfighters.

Investing in your growth

The RF/Microwave industry is very fragmented. There are many very small suppliers capable of prototyping that do not have the ability for even low-rate production. This leads to an expensive supply chain proposition where quality and delivery can be problematic for prime contractors and putting reliability of supply in jeopardy.

Mercury is not a competitor; we’re a partner, sharing your program goals. Our AMCs offer capabilities designed to reduce costs and drive affordability.

  • Streamlined RF/M supply-chain with one-stop shopping; from design through manufacturing, decreasing supply-chain complexity, significantly reducing risk
  • World-class automation – from production through testing – lowering costs
  • Co-located design and manufacturing engineering assets to optimize on-board and build-to-print work
  • Redundant, state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities scale from design to full-rate production
  • ISO 9001 certified
  • Defense Security Service “Superior” rated facilities

RF & Microwave Capabilities that Provide Smart, Affordable Solutions.

With the pivot to the Pacific as a key strategy, there is a need for new capabilities to address peer and near-peer threats. This requires upgrades to existing radar, electronic warfare and other ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) platforms. The Mercury AMCs work hand-in-hand with prime defense contractors (such as BAE, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrup Grumman) to design and produce these electronic systems.

Key programs our Mercury AMCs support include:

  • Electronic warfare upgrades for the F-15, F-16 and other advance fighter jets
  • The US Navy SEWIP program
