"We are honored to receive this prominent award recognizing our initiative to provide trusted microelectronics to our warfighters around the globe," said Usha Shah, Vice President and General Manager of Mercury's US Manufacturing Operations group. "By successfully challenging the fundamental assumptions of high-volume manufacturing in the defense industry, our military forces now have access to the most advanced manufacturing technologies without sacrificing quality, time-to-market or security."

"Congratulations to Mercury Systems and the team that created the SMT Center of Excellence," said Jeff Moad, Director of the Manufacturing Leadership Awards.
