Mercury Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), a best-of-breed provider of commercially developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced the deployment of the most powerful OpenVPX™-based sensor processing subsystem ever developed for an airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) application.

Based on the OpenVPX open architecture standard, the subsystem can process and exploit huge amounts of sensor data in real-time, store it onboard for retrieval and forensic analysis and send imagery to ground stations or hand-held devices. This massive real-time compute capability is achieved through the skillful integration of Intel® Xeon® server-class processors, general purpose graphical processing units (GPGPUs) and ruggedized solid state disk storage arrays, effectively providing a unique, open commodity-class server capability for SWaP-constrained airborne environments.
