Mercury Computer Systems Receives U.S. Government Research & Development Prime Contract for JCREW Technology Demonstration

via PRNewswire

In the initial development effort, Mercury and ITT will combine forces to implement and demonstrate the portability of the CANWAC (Constant Amplitude Network Waveform Adaptive Combiner) algorithm. Mercury will provide ITT with its Waveform-Ready(TM) processing platform and Component Portability Infrastructure(TM) (CPI(TM)) middleware. CPI simplifies programming and greatly improves code portability, interoperability, and performance in FPGA- and DSP-based heterogeneous processing environments, by providing well-defined waveform component APIs with a set of infrastructure building blocks that act as a hardware abstraction layer. The Mercury Waveform-Ready processing platform combines the latest processor, transceiver, and interconnect technologies with CPI to help customers rapidly meet the challenge of leveraging evolving standards and emerging technologies.

Mercury believes a common technology baseline can be deployed to cover a range of mission requirements. "Leveraging the advantages of an open architecture with a software-programmable environment will be critical to affordably and rapidly developing new applications, and inserting new technologies into deployed mission-critical systems," said Terry Ryan , Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mercury Federal Systems, Inc. "Together with ITT Electronic Systems, we will make this possible, as we have the necessary capabilities to develop open solutions that will enable new and emerging threats to be detected, countered, and tracked in a time-critical manner."
