Bringing custom capabilities to a standard radar environment simulator: Meet the ARES3100
The ARES3100 is here—an advanced radar environment simulator for testing, training and comprehensive performance evaluation that leverages decades of technological innovation and is a proven, more affordable alternative to flight testing. In this MeruryNOW podcast, we discuss how Mercury is bringing custom capabilities to a standard system with a new advanced radar environment simulator.
Mitigating Risk with IPC-1791 Qualified Manufacturers Certification
An IPC-1791 Qualified Manufacturers Listing is quickly becoming a necessity for manufacturers who are committed to delivering the most trusted and secure manufacturing capabilities. Listen as Joe Scalfani, Mercury’s senior manager of quality systems, and Randy Cherry, IPC director of validation services, discuss mitigating risk with IPC-1791 certifications and the value it brings to businesses and customers alike.
The Importance of AI in the Aerospace and Defense Industry
What’s in store for the future of artificial intelligence (AI)? How is AI currently being used in the aerospace and defense industry to gain operational advantages? How is AI affecting all our daily lives? Mercury’s Karen Haigh, fellow chief technologist, provides answers to these questions and more. Karen, who is currently writing a book about the relevance of AI to electronic warfare, has made it her mission at Mercury to help customers realize the full potential of what can be accomplished with AI. She is also spearheading a companywide initiative to educate Mercury team members on the role they play in advancing the future of AI to deliver our purpose: Innovation that Matters, By and For People Who Matter.
Modern Processing Approaches for JADC2
Joint All-Domain Command and Control, or JADC2, is the DOD’s vision to connect sensors from all the military services—Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Space Force—into a single network by providing a cloud-like environment for the Joint force to share intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data, transmitting across many communications networks, to enable faster decision-making. Listen in as Matthew Alexander, fellow systems engineer at Mercury Systems, discusses the challenges associated with implementing JADC2 and the role Mercury is playing to help make it a reality – from data center processing at the edge to high-performance AI processors and secure processing.
Accelerating AI at the Edge for Large-Scale Analytics
The explosion of big data has driven the need for utilizing artificial intelligence to break through “data noise,” process and analyze data efficiently, and return actionable information. In addition, there is a growing demand to take this processing out of the data center and bring it to the edge for faster critical insights. Listen in to find out how Mercury and NVIDIA are working together to deliver the latest commercial technologies in trusted, secure mission-critical systems for aerospace and defense applications.
Expanding Capabilities for Signal and Electronic Intelligence
One year after acquiring Syntonic Microwave, Mercury Mixed Signal group’s Neal Austin and Jay Goodfriend join the MercuryNOW podcast to discuss how merging Syntonic’s domain expertise in flexible RF technology has supported Mercury’s position as a leading provider of high-performance, SWaP-optimized EW subsystems. Their expanded portfolio of frequency synthesizers, phase-coherent tuners and microwave frequency converters for signal and electronic intelligence applications now provides customers greater access to highly differentiated sensor processing capabilities.
