Ensemble® portfolio of rugged embedded radar signal processing
building blocks feature highly interoperable Intel® Xeon®
general compute processors, massively-parallel GPGPUs and low-latency FPGA
resources that can be configured and scaled to meet the most complex radar
signal processing applications. Our radar signal processing subsystems are
designed and made in America, using devices from secure supply chains to ensure
system integrity and are ideally suited to modern radars including AESAs.
Mercury has long
been an innovator in open system architectures and has pioneered many of
today’s widely adopted MOSAs including OpenVPXTM, AdvancedTCATM and OpenRFMTM. Our advanced Air Flow-ByTM and Liquid Flow-ByTM cooling technologies
emphasize extremely low-SWaP and the densest radar signal processing resources
for reliable deployment at the tactical edge, whether the edge is on the
ground, at sea, or at high altitude.
radars - With SWaP and signal processing density often the driving
forces, Mercury supplies key subsystems on dozens of airborne radars. In
addition, many platforms fly for decades. This requires a path to modernization
for key electronic systems. Mercury's open architecture designs enable
affordable upgrade paths. Read one of our
airborne radar success stories.
radars - Ships expect to face massive, simultaneous attacks.
As a result, their radar systems need to be multi-function and have advanced
capabilities. Mercury's radar signal processing subsystem includes Intel® Xeon server-class processor and FPGA based
technologies that deliver low-latency and massive radar signal processing
radar - Missiles are proliferating the need for ground-based missile defense
systems around the world. These radars need to track multiple objects with
small radar cross-sections. Mercury has a long history of supplying such key
radar signal processing subsystems. Read how Mercury helped
a customer develop, qualify and deploy such a system.
Digital RF Memory (DRFM)
Ensemble building blocks extend in to the RF and microwave domain through
OpenRFM. Integrating RF and microwave with low-latency digital processing
resources enables Mercury to configure wideband DRFMs and sophisticated radar
environmental simulators with which to exercise the most modern and complex
environmental simulators provide simulated RF returns that exercise active
radar sensors including fire control, surveillance, guidance, and imaging. They
are especially adept at testing AESA radars. Mercury RESs are scalable and
supported by the largest library of techniques that exercise the latest radar,
EW and SIGINT systems in the lab and in the field.
