Embedded Signal Sensor Processing

Performance embedded OpenVPX sensor signal processing pre-integrated subsystems

  • slide

On-platform signal sensor processing systems require greater performance to identify increasingly stealthy threats, from farther away, in all conditions and in all directions. Our sustainable, purpose-built solutions feature the best, unrestricted commercially developed processing technology packaged as secure, rugged, compact and scalable systems for deployment anywhere. 

       

 

 

Highest sustainable processing performance

Purpose-built for your embedded EO/IR, C4ISR, radar, EW, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, our system pre-integration expertise is proven across 300+ aerospace and defense programs to lower risk, while delivering more affordable and sustainable processing power.


We guarantee software performance  on the purpose-built 3U, 6U, OpenVPX or custom small-form-factor solution we design and build for you. For exportability and extreme environmental protection,  you can add our proven BuiltSECURE systems security engineering and MOTS+ rugged technologies.

Services

By engaging Mercury to design and build your processing system, you leverage the industry’s most proven system integration experts and the widest, most contemporary portfolio of interoperable digital, RF and mixed signal system building blocks. 

Our engineering  teams are a natural extension of your own capabilities. Using processes and tools similar to yours, our experts optimize your design and reduce program risk with advanced thermal, EMC, structural, signal integrity, power, safety critical, security, and SWaP optimization modeling.

World-Class Program Management

Mercury program managers utilize the best industry practices, including total life cycle and risk management tools and work closely with our engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, quality, test and contract review teams, providing complete program transparency from beginning to end.

Your program manager oversees the verification, validation, qualification and acceptance testing of your system across Mercury and third-party components. Any items with the potential for diminished availability are identified by your program manager who creates a plan with you to mitigate your program risk. 

Deployable Data Center for Unequaled Performance

High performance embedded edge computing (HPEEC) is the only OpenVPX approach that uses the data center as its reference architecture giving you a common enterprise compute environment   from cloud to edge for maximum IP reuse.

Built with EnsembleSeries HPEEC building blocks that mirror data center Xeon-powered servers, GPU/FPGA coprocessors, wideband PCIe switches, fast storage and low-latency I/O building blocks, HPEEC subsystems deliver more processing capability than any other embedded approach.

Lowest SWaP, Efficient Cooling and Extreme Ruggedization

Our system-in-package, wafer-stacking, 2.5D and 3D fabrication techniques reduce your system complexity and shrink key processing hardware by as much as 90%, optimizing SWaP performance. Supported with efficient  conduction, air, liquid and hybrid cooling technologies, your system will deliver reliable, full-throttle, unrestricted performance longer.
For extreme environmental protection, our MOTS+ packaging technologies use enhanced commercial components, board fabrication rules and subsystem design techniques and withstand extreme temperature cycles better than other rugged designs.
