: 21 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Northrop Grumman Orders PowerStream 7000 Multicomputers from Mercury Computer Solutions for use in US Navy contract for radar image processing
Mercury Computer Systems has been selected by Northrop Grumman to deliver its scalable multi-computing products and services for the US Navy Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (BAMS) Program.

Mercury will provide PowerStream 7000 multicomputers, the most powerful embedded computing platform in deployment, and a heterogeneous operating system for the BAMS UAS to enable the processing of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The BAMS UAS is designed to support a variety of all-weather maritime ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) missions.

“We’re pleased to work with Northrop Grumman to provide persistent maritime ISR capability to soldiers,” said Brian Hoerl, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Mercury. “Mercury’s PowerStream multicomputers, which are deployed on some of the world’s largest radar platforms, combine the power of FPGA processors with massive I/O and real-time reconfiguration, delivering the performance density and reliability necessary for this vitally important application.”
