Mercury Systems, Inc. congratulates Boeing on its initial deliveries of KC-46A Pegasus tanker aircraft to the U.S. Air Force.
Jennifer Graves, General Manager of the Mercury Mission Systems group, attended Boeing’s delivery ceremonies in Everett, Wash. earlier this year, as a VIP guest in recognition of being a long-term trusted vendor that has supplied many mission-critical line replacement units (LRU) to Boeing on time and defect free.
“Mercury Systems is honored to be a supplier to Boeing on this vital program to modernize our nation’s long-range, airborne tanker fleet with next generation technology and capability,” said Ms. Graves. “Mercury continues to earn recognition as a top-rated supplier, delivering ‘first-time’ quality products on time and meeting Boeing’s delivery schedule to the U.S. Air Force.”
Since the first delivery events in January, Boeing has continued to deliver tanker aircraft to the Air Force at both McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas and Altus Air Force Base in Oklahoma.
Mercury Systems develops and supplies the hardware and software required by nine on-platform, flight-certifiable avionics boxes that enhance mission effectiveness with improved situational awareness, giving aviators greater operational flexibility.
