Mercury Monitors Submarines for General Dynamics Electric Boat

9/10/2003 - Mercury Computer Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) announced that it has shipped RACE++® Series multicomputer systems to General Dynamics Electric Boat for use in the development of its Ship Monitoring program to monitor submarine performance.

"Sensors pick up noise generated by submarines and our systems process the acoustic data that are recorded," said Barry Isenstein, vice president and general manager of Mercury’s Defense Electronics Group. "This specialized development project demonstrates the flexibility of our RACE++ systems to support a wide variety of applications that require the real-time transformation of streams of data from sensors into usable formats for analysis."

Orders for these development RACE++ systems were shipped in the third quarter of fiscal 2003. The systems are part of a developmental effort that may result in future orders upon successful completion of the program.
