The US Navy has ordered $11.7 million (€10.1 million) of Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers from Mercury Systems, the company announced on 22 July. The award is made under the previously-announced $152 million five-year sole-source basic ordering agreement (BOA).
Mercury DRFM jammers are size, weight and power (SWaP) optimised to meet the electronic protection requirements of airborne pod-based solutions and incorporate decades of DRFM technology development, validated electronic attack techniques and custom RF components purpose-built to support advanced EW test and training capabilities.
“Our advanced DRFM systems are a critical tool for providing realistic electronic threats for naval testing, evaluation and training,” commented Mark Bruington, VP of Mercury’s Processing division. “It’s part of our commitment to developing and producing a simultaneous multiple-threat processing system with a flexible architecture that can evolve to keep pace with emerging threats, delivering ‘Innovation That Matters’ to our service men and women in the field.”
