Electronics specialist Mercury Systems Inc. will provide the U.S. Navy with electronic jamming equipment under terms of a $3.9 million initial production contract award.
Mercury, Chelmsford, Mass., said Sept. 30 it will deliver digital RF memory (DRFM) jammers to support Navy training activities at Pt. Mugu, Calif., as part of a five-year sole source “basic ordering agreement.” Mercury said it expects to complete the jammer shipments by 2015.
The DRFM jammer hardware and software are used to train U.S. aircrews on how to counter advanced electronic warfare attacks, the company said in a statement. The DFRM architecture was developed by KOR Electronics, now known as Mercury Defense Systems.
