Mercury launches first SOSA-aligned secure mission


DAL-certified system based on open standards delivers up to 40 times more performance than current-generation computers while saving space, power and cost

ANDOVER, Mass., May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in reliable and secure critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced new Avionics Modular Mission Platform (AMMP), the industry’s first and only SOSA-aligned and DAL-certified OpenVPX™ mission computer. Featuring the latest safety-certified Intel® Core™ i7 processors, the AMMP delivers up to 40 times the performance of current-generation avionics computers while consuming 50% less power and is ideal for a wide range of platforms, including rotary and fixed wing aircraft. , ground stations and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Why is this important:
By leveraging AI and autonomous capabilities, Mercury’s modular and scalable Mission Computer improves decision accuracy and pilot response times, making pilots and their aircraft safer and more capable.

“Safety-certified flight mission computers are often built with custom or proprietary architectures that make them difficult and expensive to maintain and upgrade,” said Jay Abendroth, vice president of Mercury Mission. “In contrast, our new AMMP system offers the perfect combination of state-of-the-art commercial processing, DAL-A artifacts, and alignment with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) specification. This state-of-the-art technology is a great example of how our strategy and investments in secure processing, trusted microelectronics, and open mission systems are driving the company’s growth.It also aligns well with the DoD’s need for open mission systems taking takes on its Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) mandate.”

Mercury’s AMMP is purpose-built to support advanced, real-time, safety-critical applications such as mission management, sensor fusion/processing, surveillance, 5G communications, and artificial intelligence. The computer is integrated with Mercury’s BuiltSAFE™ commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) multi-core single-board computers, avionics I/O, video processing, and software to deliver flawless performance. while simplifying the onboarding and certification process, saving customers time and money.

Built with open architectures and the latest security-certifiable commercial technology

  • SOSA-aligned architecture for faster integration and maintenance at lower cost
  • Multiple Intel® Core™ i7 Gen 11 processors with integrated GPUs for increased performance
  • A range of avionics I/O including ARINC-429 to capture and distribute HD video
  • Fully configurable and independent 3U boards to run multiple mixed security workloads
  • Robust, compact and low-power design to reduce risk and save aircraft resources
  • Green Hills, Lynx, and Linux card support packs to meet FAA CAST-32A goals

Mercury can also integrate a display, mapping system, cockpit management system, and sensors with AMMP to maximize interoperability, optimize display performance, and save customer onboarding time.

Mercury envisions, creates and delivers innovative technology solutions specifically designed to meet the most pressing high-tech needs of its customers. Visit the AMMP product page for more information or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or mission@mrcy.com.
