CHELMSFORD, Mass., February 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), a best-of-breed provider of commercially
developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical
commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced today that it has
been awarded a 3-year indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contract
by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Tactical Electronic Warfare
Division (TEWD). Worth up to $16.7 million, the contract calls for Mercury to
supply advanced mixed signal digital receivers for prototype electronic
warfare applications on airborne and surface shipboard platforms.

"The Navy's requirement to deny or degrade hostile uses of the electromagnetic
spectrum has placed new demands on existing electronic warfare systems," said
Ian Dunn, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury's RF and Microwave
Subsystems Group. "This win reaffirms Mercury's leading-edge capabilities in
digital signal processing and data movement. Our array of mixed-signal
offerings delivers ultra-fast tuning, high dynamic range, and extreme data
processing — all critical elements of electronic warfare support measures."

The Naval Research Laboratory, commissioned in 1923 by Congress for the
Department of Navy, serves as the Navy's corporate laboratory. NRL conducts a
broad program of scientific research and advanced technological development
directed toward maritime applications of new improved materials, techniques
and equipment. TEWD provides new and advanced concepts and systems in
electronic warfare that improve the ability of the Navy to perform its vital
mission.
