CHELMSFORD, MA. Officials at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Tactical Electronic Warfare Division (TEWD) selected Mercury Systems to supply advanced mixed signal digital receivers for prototype electronic warfare uses on airborne and surface shipboard applications. The award is a 3-year indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contract potentially worth as much $16.7 million.

Navy officials are issuing requirements for denial or degradation of hostile uses of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is placing new demands on existing electronic warfare systems,” says Ian Dunn, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s RF and Microwave Subsystems Group.

NRL TEWD develops new and advanced concepts and systems in electronic warfare that enhance Navy capabilities.
