Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced the new Avionics Modular Mission Platform (AMMP), the industry’s first and only SOSA aligned, DAL-certifiable, 3U OpenVPX™ mission computer. Featuring the latest Intel® Core™ i7 safety-certifiable processors, AMMP delivers up to 40x more performance than current-generation avionics computers while drawing 50% less power and is ideally suited to a wide range of platforms including rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, ground stations and unmanned aerial vehicles.
Why It Matters:
By leveraging AI and autonomous capabilities, Mercury’s modular scalable mission computer improves decision accuracy and response times for pilots, making the 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, Mercury Mission. “In contrast, our new AMMP system offers the perfect combination of cutting-edge commercial processing, DAL-A artifacts and alignment with the sensor open systems architecture (SOSA) specification. This cutting-edge technology is a great example of how our strategy and investments in secure processing, trusted microelectronics, and open mission systems are serving as the engines of growth in the business. It also aligns well with the DoD’s need for open mission systems supporting their modular open systems approach (MOSA) mandate.”

Mercury’s AMMP is purpose-built to support advanced and real-time safety-critical applications such as mission management, sensor fusion/processing, surveillance, 5G communications and artificial intelligence. The computer comes integrated with Mercury’s BuiltSAFE™ commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) multi-core single board computers, avionics IO, video processing and software to deliver flawless performance. while simplifying integration and the certification process, saving customers valuable time and money.
Built with open architectures and the latest safety-certifiable commercial technology
Mercury can also integrate a display, mapping system, cockpit management system and sensors with AMMP to maximize interoperability, optimize display performance and save customer integration time.
