Electronic Warfare From Chip Scale to System Scale

Bringing Technology Innovation to the Spectrum

As more nations deploy advanced electronic warfare (EW) capabilities, it is becoming increasingly critical to leverage the latest technologies from both traditional defense companies and the commercial industry to maintain spectrum superiority. 

With this growing demand for the latest technology comes the challenge of ensuring a trusted supply chain, securing mission-critical information, and operating in harsh environments.

At Mercury, we have proven expertise in applying cutting-edge innovation to mission-critical applications.

Technology Powers Our Products

Starting at Chip Scale

To enable the next generation of electronic warfare solutions, we start at chip scale with our high-density system-in-package capability. Leveraging this technology core, we develop differentiated subsystems to enable mission-critical EW applications.

From silicon to systems and everywhere in between, we make trusted, secure, mission-critical technologies profoundly more accessible and affordable to aerospace and defense. 

Digital RF Memory (DRFM) Technology

DRFM modules enable many electronic warfare applications from the sea to the air. This technology is at the core of the system and performs the low-latency processing that is needed to implement complex EW techniques. 

At Mercury, we incorporate leading DRFM technology in a wide range of products, such as our airborne electronic attack emulators, that use a library of validated threats to provide realistic training to radar operators. 


Our Products Power Your Mission 

Advancing SOSA from RF to Digital

Through standards like the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA), the latest technology can be rapidly deployed to the battlefield. Mercury's SOSA portfolio includes broadband RF converters and sensor processing modules.

SOSA Solutions

Monitoring the Spectrum

As signals increase in complexity so must the RF front ends. By adopting a modular and configurable architecture, a single microwave tuner can support multiple missions. Here at Mercury, we've developed a line of configurable frequency converters with dynamically adjustable bandwidths.

Frequency Converters

Processing SIGINT

The proliferation of sensors, growing data loads and deep-learning neural networks continue to increase computational demands on hardware platforms. Serving as the processing backbone on multiple EW and SIGINT platforms, our rugged subsystems and servers minimize lag time and simultaneously tackle large amounts of actionable data for quicker analysis and decision-making.

Rackmount Servers 

Validating Electronic Protection Capabilities

While radar system design is a complex process, it can be simplified through efficient testing solutions that minimize the need for flight testing. To evaluate radar performance and validate electronic protection capabilities, our radar environment simulators realistically model complex environments and electronic attack scenarios.
