“Our AS9100D-certified Huntsville facility now has even more capability, enabling us to continue providing very advanced, leading mixed-signal processing solutions that support our Prime customers in the development of the next-generation radar, electronic warfare and ELINT systems critical to maintaining dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum,” said Neil Austin, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Embedded Sensor Processing group. “This expansion is part of our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with scalable and redundant design and trusted manufacturing facilities coupled with best-in-industry innovation and technology.”

“The expansion of this facility further reinforces Alabama’s commitment to driving economic growth and prosperity through the creation of sustainable, high-quality jobs,” said Congressman Mo Brooks. “I congratulate the team at Mercury Systems for this truly impressive facility, and I am proud of the Alabama citizens now supporting our military forces with trusted defense microelectronics.”

Mercury’s Advanced Microelectronics Centers are a key component for the realization of the Company’s next-generation business model.
