Mercury Computer Systems has been awarded a multiyear contract by a prime contractor to field-upgrade advanced active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar systems.

Under the contract, the company will provide powerful signal processing modules, which will be used on-board military aircraft to broadcast radar signals while remaining undetected.

The fully software-compatible signal processing modules can be easily and quickly used to board-swap upgrades on the radar in the field.

The company did not disclose the details of the prime contractor, terms of the contract and the award value.
