Collaboration Between Mercury Systems and Lockheed Martin in Computing Technology

Mercury Systems has announced a partnership with Lockheed Martin to produce advanced computing technologies at its facility in Geneva, Switzerland. This collaboration is the result of an offset program between Lockheed and the Swiss government after acquiring F-35 II stealth fighter jets.

Switzerland’s Federal Office for Defence Procurement will provide critical security technologies like software-defined radio capabilities and cryptology to support production. The country is investing heavily in modernization initiatives across its military, with a significant investment of 2.1 billion euros ($2.5 billion) in national defense in 2021.

The military is focusing on acquiring sophisticated capabilities such as surveillance drones and kamikaze drones, as well as Lockheed’s Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missile systems. Despite a 1.4 percent budget cut in all other government departments, the military proposed an increased defense budget of 25.8 billion francs ($28.7 billion) last year, aimed at addressing security threats arising from the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian war.

“We are excited to join forces with Lockheed Martin to bring advanced defense technologies manufacturing to Switzerland,” said Paul Tanner, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury International. “These agreements will enhance the Mercury Processing Platform and enable us to introduce new, cutting-edge capabilities to the European market.”
