Mercury Systems Launches Mission Computing Product Line
Addresses Demand For Easily Integrated Safety-Critical Solutions In Defense and Commercial Avionics
Mercury Systems, Inc., announced that it has launched the Mercury Mission Systems (MMS) product line to address the immediate needs for safety-critical solutions for mission computing, avionics and platform management in the defense and commercial aerospace markets. MMS products feature not only the highest level of design assurance but also a full set of supporting software that reduces integration time and effort. The product line includes solutions from the former Creative Electronic Systems, S.A. (“CES”) located in Geneva, Switzerland, acquired by Mercury Systems on November 4, 2016.
MMS products will reach a global customer base and provide immediate benefits while leveraging 35 years of aerospace experience designing subsystems deployed in applications certified up to the highest levels of design assurance, DAL-A, for both DO-254 and DO-178. These safety-qualified product and subsystems solutions include primary flight control units, flight test computers, mission computers, command and control processors, graphics and video processing, and avionics-certified Ethernet and I/O.
“The launch of the Mercury Mission Systems product line demonstrates our commitment to offer affordable, innovative mission computing and platform management solutions to a broad set of top-tier aerospace customers,” said Ian Dunn, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury’s Sensor and Mission Processing group. “Together, Mercury’s mission computing and sensor processing solutions will provide an unprecedented combination of safety-critical and secure processing.”
A key advantage that Mercury Mission Systems products bring to Mercury’s customers is a much deeper software stack for easier integration. Unlike other mission processor and platform management boards available in the embedded computing market that typically are provided with only a basic board support package (BSP), MMS products includes a DAL-certifiable bootloader, built-in test and health monitoring software specifically designed for each board, thereby reducing both integration time and overall deployment costs. Mercury Mission Systems also provides a rich set of equipment configuration software tools to help customers efficiently assemble complex multi-processor and multi-FPGA systems where a fast-loading mechanism and reliable version control of all software elements are required.
