Mercury Systems and Lockheed Martin to Advance Defense Manufacturing Capabilities in Switzerland

Mercury Mission Systems International SA, a technology company that delivers mission-critical processing power to the edge, today announced that it will advance the manufacturing of defense technologies in Switzerland in collaboration with Lockheed Martin. This project is a direct result of the offset program between Lockheed Martin and the Swiss government as part of Switzerland’s purchase of the F-35 Lightning II. Under two initial engineering development agreements, Mercury will begin manufacturing several embedded computing technologies at its production facility in Geneva. These projects will be enabled by the transfer of two of armasuisses’s key security-relevant technologies–software-defined radio technologies and cryptology–to Swiss industry.

“Lockheed Martin is proud to partner with Mercury as they expand the capability of their facility in Switzerland. We look forward to continuing to build on our partnership with Swiss industry to drive collaboration and advance opportunity through the F-35 offset program,” said Karl Sapienza, director of F-35 Customer Programs at Lockheed Martin.

“We are thrilled to work with Lockheed Martin to bring the manufacture of cutting-edge defense technologies to Switzerland. These agreements will expand the Mercury Processing Platform and allow us to bring new, advanced capabilities to the European market,” said Paul Tanner, VP and GM of Mercury International.

Mercury expects to receive further expansion opportunities over time to bring the manufacture of additional capabilities to Switzerland. With high-tech facilities and workforces in Switzerland, as well as Spain and the United Kingdom, the Mercury Processing Platform enables capabilities that support the critical missions and industrial development of U.S. allies through offset and other agreements.
