Mercury Computer Systems to deliver rugged, high-density, solid-state data recorder for airborne ISR

CHELMSFORD, Mass., 18 May 2012. Mercury Computer Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:MRCY), maker of commercially developed application-ready intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and electronic warfare (EW) subsystems for defense prime contractors, will provide an advanced, solid-state data recorder for the aggregation and storage of sensor data from airborne ISR applications.

Mercury engineers provided an as-yet-unnamed defense customer with a rapid prototype solution: a high-density/-capacity digital storage unit (DSU) with a controller function built to the 3U OpenVPX standard, according to Didier Thibaud, Senior vice president and general manager of Mercury Computer Systems’ Advanced Computing Solutions business unit.

Mercury’s DSU includes commercially available solid-state disk (SSD) components configured within a compact, rugged, deployable enclosure. The controller supports flexible protocol conversions as part of the data-recording process.
