Mercury produces up and down converters, receivers and transmitters for secure communications, homeland security and other defense applications. We cover frequency bands starting at low KHz frequencies through to RF, microwave and millimeter wave frequencies. Product specifications can vary widely and are typically defined by customer specifications.
Mercury’s ultra-fast RF tuners and digital receivers gave a prime customer the discriminator it needed to win the SEWIP Block 2 program, unseating the incumbent in the process. After delivering on this initial capability, Mercury’s engagement eventually broadened to include collaboration on the full signal processing subsystem design. At the end of the day, Mercury’s products and services won on two crucial counts: technical performance and overall system cost. Together they created a compelling advantage that the DoD simply could not ignore.
