IT provider Mercury Computer Systems has delivered radar processing subsystems to an unnamed marine company for its next-generation maritime radar to be deployed on surface fleet vessels and aircraft carriers.

The radar has been designed to meet stringent size, weight and power requirements and improve sensing capability when operating in a complex littoral, or shoreline environment, the company said.

The subsystems will also enable the customer to minimise risk and accelerate the customer’s time to deployment, Mercury said.

The company has used its VXS processing modules and multicomputing software suite, combined with the Serial Front Panel Data Port sensor interface and the RapidIO(R) switch.
