Mercury Systems Receives $3.9M Initial Contract Award From US Navy for DRFM

CHELMSFORD, Mass., September 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems,
Inc. (Nasdaq:MRCY) (, a best-of-breed provider of commercially
developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical
commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced that its Mercury
Defense Systems (MDS) subsidiary has received a $3.9 million initial contract
award against its 5 year sole source basic ordering agreement (BOA) to deliver
advanced Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammers to the U.S. Navy. The order is
expected to be shipped by the end of Mercury's fiscal 2015 third quarter.

The jammers will be delivered to the US Navy at Pt. Mugu, Calif., in support
of training asset requirements. Through this and subsequent BOA contract
awards, MDS and the US Navy will continue development of state-of-the-art
techniques and target generation capabilities in conjunction with the advanced
DRFM architecture developed under a prior Small Business Innovation Research
(SBIR) Phase II.5 award previously issued to KOR Electronics, now Mercury
Defense Systems.

"This initial production contract award solidifies MDS's commitment to the
advancement of DRFM hardware and software subsystems in support of the
warfighter," said Kevin Carnino, President, Mercury Defense Systems. "Our
advanced jammers provide U.S. aircrews with exposure and training to ensure
that the first time they encounter advanced electronic attack capabilities it
is not in an actual combat environment. These jammer capabilities are critical
for continued U.S. air superiority."
