Mercury Systems Receives Prestigious Cogswell Award from U.S. Defense Security Service

CHELMSFORD, Mass., June 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), announced that its Hudson, N.H. Advanced Microelectronics Center (AMC) received the 2016 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Security Achievement Award from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Security Service (DSS).

This award, which recognizes industrial security excellence, is the highest honor the DSS presents to cleared industry partners. Out of the approximately 13,500 cleared facilities nationwide, only 42 facilities received a Cogswell Award this year. Facilities may be nominated for the award only if they have a minimum of two consecutive superior industrial security review ratings and show a sustained degree of excellence and innovation in their overall security program management, implementation and oversight. Mercury’s Hudson AMC facility has received multiple superior security ratings to date.

“This is a major accomplishment for the Mercury team at the Hudson AMC and we are extremely proud of the diligence, hard work and commitment that led to this tremendous honor,” said Gerry Haines, Executive Vice President of Mercury Systems. “With less than one percent of cleared facilities receiving this recognition, earning this level of trust is a clear validation of our unwavering dedication to stringent processes and systems that safeguard the technology and data vital to our servicemen and women and to our country’s national security.”

The award was presented to Mercury on June 8 at the 52nd annual National Classification Management Society seminar in Las Vegas.
