  1. ELECTRONIC WARFARE: Navy looks to Mercury for spare parts to shipboard EW systems

    U.S. Navy shipboard electronics experts needed various electronic spare parts for the Navy's AN/SLQ-32(V)6 ship-mounted electronic warfare (EW) system. They found their solution from Mercury Systems Inc. in Chelmsford, Mass. Officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Ind., announced a potential $7.3 million contract to Mercury to provide digital and RF and microwave components as spares for the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 shipboard EW system, part of the Navy's Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 upgrade program. The contract calls for Mercury to provide ARC bus controllers, PDF synthesizers, PDF tuners, 8-channel digital receivers, 4-channel digital receivers, and clock generator VME cards for the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 EW and shipboard missile-defense system. The five-year contract has a minimum value of $54,000 and a maximum value of slightly more than $7.3 million, Navy officials say. The prime systems integrator for the AN/SLQ-32(V)6 is the Lockheed Martin Corp. Mission Systems and Training segment in Liverpool, N.Y. Navy officials are awarding the contract to Mercury sole-source because Mercury is the only qualified supplier of the spare electronic parts, and an award to any source other than Mercury would result in an unacceptable delay of more than 38 months with additional costs, officials say. Lockheed Martin awarded a contract to Mercury in 2011 to provide advanced RF microwave tuners and intermediate frequency (IF) products as part of the SEWIP Block 2 upgrade program. For that contract Mercury provided the company's Echotek series microwave tuner and digital receiver, which are optimized for fast tuning and high performance. The SEWIP block 2 upgrade includes receiver, antenna, and combat system interface. FOR MORE INFORMATION visit Mercury Systems online at www.mrcy.com
