Mercury Systems delivers 1,000th Apache ethernet routing device to Boeing
Tuesday, 9 February 2021

Mercury Systems Inc., a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, has achieved a significant milestone with the delivery of the 1,000th ethernet routing device (ERD) to Boeing. The ERD is a rugged line-replaceable unit (LRU) designed for aviation applications where extreme temperature, shock and vibration are prevalent. It provides key networking capabilities to the AH-64E Apache helicopter.

The high quality and reliable performance of the ERDs help support Boeing's Apache aircraft, sustaining this successful long-term program. This latest milestone continues Mercury's more than 35 years of serving the major defense prime contractor outsourcing needs by developing trusted and secure, lower-cost, flexible and easily upgradeable systems and platforms.

"We're proud of our work with Boeing and honored to be part of the Apache program," said Dr. Amela Wilson, Mercury's senior vice president and general manager, Mission. "Our dedicated workforce, coupled with our close supplier relationship with Boeing, has been the catalyst for success on this project. We look forward to continuing our support of the defense avionics industry by delivering leading-edge technologies that are secure, reliable and purpose-built to perform with absolute precision in extreme environments, under the most intense conditions."
