Mercury Systems has secured an order from an undisclosed defence prime contractor for the delivery of its BuiltSecure high-density secure memory devices.

Once delivered, the memory devices will be integrated into a state-of-the-art airborne command, control and intelligence (C2I) computing system.

The follow-on order was booked in the second quarter of Mercury Systems’ 2018 fiscal year and is expected to be delivered over the next several quarters.

The follow-on contract is valued at $7.7m.

The memory devices are designed and built in the company’s Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) in Phoenix, Arizona, US.

“Mercury delivers the most advanced commercial memory technologies in a compact form factor engineered to withstand the harshest operating conditions.”

Mercury Systems Advanced Microelectronics Solutions Group senior vice-president and general manager Charlie Leader said: “We are very pleased to receive this follow-on order from our valued customer for BuiltSecure high-speed memory devices.

“With the capabilities embedded in our Phoenix AMC, Mercury delivers the most advanced commercial memory technologies in a compact form factor engineered to withstand the harshest operating conditions encountered by our warfighters.”

BuiltSecure memory devices leverage Mercury Systems’ expertise in three-dimensional packaging technology, transforming a two-dimensional array of memory devices into a single, vertically-integrated memory module ruggedised for the harshest military operating environments.

In October last year, the company received a $3.2m follow-on order from a defence prime contractor for BuiltSecure devices to be installed into an airborne C2I system.

Another $8m contract was received in September of the same year for the delivery of the memory devices for integration into active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar systems installed on an advanced airborne military platform.
