Global technology company Mercury Systems has confirmed that it will collaborate with defence businesses to support Australia’s sovereign guided munitions capability.
Mercury Systems has confirmed this week that the company will collaborate to support Australia’s sovereign guided munitions industry, committing to use the company's expertise and work with leading Australian defence businesses.
Paul Tanner, vice president of Mercury Systems, welcomed the opportunity to support Australia’s sovereign guided munitions industry and hoped that Mercury System’s leading global expertise in the industry will benefit Australia’s missile manufacturing program.
“Mercury's broad range of solutions are embedded in more than 300 aerospace and defence programs and deployed on more than 4,000 systems in the US and allied countries," Tanner said.
The announcement comes following Mercury’s bumper delivery of over 1,000 NanoSWITCH network switches to US-based Oshkosh Defense.
Scott Orton, Mercury’s vice president and general manager, Edge, confirmed that the sale demonstrates Mercury’s commitment to technology.
“We’re proud to support our customer on this key program by providing the only fielded VICTORY-compliant switch that eliminates redundancy in Army ground vehicles with a common data bus-centric approach,” Orton concluded.
“This major milestone delivery reflects our commitment to delivering compact, lightweight and reliable mission-critical solutions to sustain long-term programs.”
