CHELMSFORD, Mass., 25 Jan. 2011. Electronic warfare systems integrators at the Lockheed Martin Mission Systems & Sensors (MS2) segment in Washington needed advanced radio frequency (RF) microwave tuners and intermediate frequency (IF) products as part of the U.S. Navy's Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 upgrade program. They found their solutions from Mercury Computer Systems Inc. in Chelmsford, Mass.
Lockheed Martin engineers chose the Mercury (NASDAQ: MRCY) Echotek series microwave tuner and digital receiver, which are optimized for fast tuning and high performance, Mercury officials say.
Lockheed Martin MS2 is providing the Navy's SEWIP block 2 upgrade for the next-generation AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic support measures system, which is based on the company's Integrated Common Electronic Warfare System (ICEWS). The SEWIP block 2 upgrade will include receiver, antenna, and combat system interface.
Capitalizing on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronics, the ICEWS is designed to scale across all ship classes in the Navy's surface fleet. For more information contact Mercury online at www.mc.com, or Lockheed Martin MS2 at www.lockheedmartin.com/ms2.
