CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS (BNS): Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. is delivering its OpenVPX-based radar subsystems to Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, to support its recently announced contracts for Patriot Air and Missile Defense System upgrades for Taiwan and Saudi Arabia.

Patriot is a combat-proven air and missile defense system chosen by 12 nations around the globe including the US, Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Greece, Spain, South Korea, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The newly redesigned Patriot protects against a full range of advanced threats, including aircraft, tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and UAVs.

Raytheon recently received a $1.7 billion contract from Saudi Arabia to upgrade Patriot missile systems to the latest configuration. Mercury has already delivered OpenVPX radar subsystems for Raytheon’s Patriot Air and Missile Defense System, supporting its rapid deployment commitment to the UAE and Taiwan, according to a news release by the company.

"These upgrades leverage Mercury’s best of breed technologies and rapid deployment services to help Raytheon improve nearly every aspect of the Patriot system, ensuring it remains the most technologically advanced air and missile defense system in the world," Didier Thibaud, senior vice president and general manager of Mercury Computer Systems’ Advanced Computing Solutions business unit, was quoted as saying in the release.
