ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the SpectrumSeries RFM3101 ultra-wideband microwavetransceiver for advanced electronic warfare (EW), electronic protection, and electronic attack applications.

Designed in accordance with OpenVPX standards, Mercury's product integrates OpenRFM-compliant receiver and transmitter building blocks with local oscillator (LO) circuitry to deliver phase noise and high dynamic range performance.

The rugged RFM3101 transceiver, which provides affordable full-spectrum coverage, is Mercury's first OpenRFM product in a compact 3U form factor.

OpenRFM is a modular open-systems architecture for the analog domain. By introducing standard electromechanical, control plane, thermal interfaces, and software it can help streamline the design and integration of digital and analog capabilities in the same device for EW applications.

Mercury's simultaneous implementation of OpenVPX and OpenRFM standards enables a modular, low-risk, plug-and-play upgrade path to maintain spectral efficiency. By replacing only performance-limiting components and not entire modules or systems, defense prime contractors can lower the total system cost of ownership over the lifetime of a military program.

Available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled variants, the microwave transceiver offers direct digitization to 6 GHz and operates with guaranteed performance over a frequency range spanning from 6 to 18 GHz with 1 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth.
