Mercury Systems Unveils Liquid Flow-By™, the Most Efficient Embedded Cooling Technology Available

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY), today unveiled the Company’s fluid management Liquid Flow-By cooling technology for embedded processing subsystems. With the ability to cool the most powerful and processing-dense devices available, Liquid Flow-By enables open system architecture (OSA) modules to operate unrestricted and reliably, regardless of the presence of a cooling air supply.

“On-platform data exploitation is critical for ISR, radar and other complex sensor processing applications,” said Ian Dunn, Vice President of Mercury Systems' Embedded Products Group. “Adaptive and capable processing is pivotal and requires new technologies that enable the best commercial processing IP to be leveraged, giving our warfighters the decisive edge. Liquid Flow-By is just such a technology, enabling the most powerful processing resources, including Intel® Xeon® server-class processors, to be securely packaged and cooled for full-throttle use on ground-based or airborne platforms, whether there is cooling air available or not. Liquid Flow-By is “flying” today and gives sensor processing subsystem developers the toolbox to add more on-platform capability than ever before.”

Liquid Flow-By seamlessly integrates liquid cooling capability into Mercury Systems’ Air Flow-By technology, the embedded industry’s most efficient air cooling management solution, which removes approximately 50% more heat than other air-cooled approaches. Both Air and Liquid Flow-By have a technology readiness level of nine (TRL-9), uniquely deliver double-sided cooling and are compliant to the rugged OpenVPX and AdvancedTCA® OSAs for seamless technology insertions. The cooling liquid may be the platform’s own fuel supply which enters each module through non-drip, quick disconnects to complement or take over the native air cooling capability of each module. Proven non-drip technology makes each module and supporting chassis a self-sealing entity, which is critical for liquid cooled subsystems - especially when the coolant is fuel. In the absence of cooling air, the coolant takes over completely.

Air and Liquid Flow-By technologies remove more heat than other cooling solutions, enabling the densest processing resources to run at full speed, while increasing MTBF by lowering the operating temperature of each processing device. SWaP is reduced through increased processing density, reducing the number of modules required and removing the subsystem’s filtration infrastructure. Each Air and Liquid Flow-By module is environmentally sealed, making them robust field replacement units (FRUs) that require no cooling filtration.

Mercury’s OSA-compliant Ensemble® sensor chain building blocks enable complex processing subsystems to be quickly configured and are available as Air or Liquid Flow-By packages, or with conventional air and conduction-cooled options.
