Mercury Radar Solutions

The on-going cat and mouse game of radar and countermeasure development becomes ever more challenging requiring the efficient acquisition of small cross-section objects, countermeasures that deny sophisticated jamming techniques, and multiple simultaneous target tracking capability. Mercury can help radar designers and manufacturers overcome these challenges with solutions that cover the entire sensor processing chain.

Whether employed for surveillance, early warning or fire control, Mercury's robust, open systems architecture solutions leverage specialized domain knowledge in:


Mercury's radar solutions include:  

Airborne radars - With SWaP often the driving force, 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.

Naval radars - Ships are expecting to face massive, simultaneous attacks. As a result, their radar systems need to be multi-function and have advanced capabilities like digital beam forming. Mercury's processing suite includes Intel® Xeon server-class processor and FPGA based technologies that provide massive and upgradable compute capabilities. And we supply critical Navy programs such as AEGIS.

Ground 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 key subsystems for these radars including the Patriot Air and Missile Defense system. Read how Mercury helped a customer develop, qualify and deploy such a system. Our radar solutions are designed and made in America, using devices from secure supply chains to ensure information assurance.

One other solution Mercury offers are Radar Environmental Simulators. These systems provide simulated RF returns to exercise active radar sensors including fire control, surveillance, guidance, imaging, proximity, fuses, and altimeters. Learn more about our test and simulation capabilities.
