Hudson contractor receives 'superior' rating from DOD
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Mercury Systems Inc. said its headquarters and newly opened Advanced Microelectronics Center in Hudson, N.H., received “superior” security ratings in recent vulnerability assessments conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Security Service (DSS).
This marks the second consecutive “superior” rating, the highest level awarded to cleared defense contractors by DSS, received by each facility.
“Our employees are keenly aware of and absolutely engaged in the mission of safeguarding sensitive information that is essential to the protection of our war-fighters,” said Gerry Haines, senior vice president. “These superior ratings demonstrate our strict compliance in protecting our technology and information and reflect the high level of trust the U.S. government places with Mercury.”
Mercury Systems has worked on more than 300 programs, including Aegis, Patriot and Predator/Reaper.A superior rating is awarded to contractors that consistently and fully implement the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual.
Currently, fewer than 8 percent of the approximately 13,000 facilities that the DSS oversees receive a superior rating.
