#PAS19 Day Three: The Right Flight Stuff

It’s Day Three of PAS 2019 and we were fortunate to spent some time down on the flight line with the skilled pilots of aircraft such as the F-35 and the KC-46, who were excited to pose for photos with fellow flying enthusiasts.

These pilots have the Right Stuff: they have honed their tactical training flight skills for thousands of hours in order to do their jobs to ensure our safety and security. When you see them in action— the Boeing A350, behemoth that it is, flying in what seems like slow motion without falling straight out of the sky or the F-22 flying low and faster than the speed of sound, then up so high it seems it will touch the sun and back down in a nose-dive spiral—you can sense, if only vicariously, that these pilots are consummate professionals.

But these aviators are the first to tell you that they are only part of a larger team: they need their mechanics, their flight engineers, and their ground crew in order to fly these exquisite machines. Mercury is part of this larger team as well.

The Mercury team’s commitment to safety, innovation, agility and security delivers the Right Stuff to these pilots, mechanisms, engineers, and crews that allows them to practice their skills and to maximize the potential of their aircraft in order to accomplish their missions. We salute them.

#PAS19 Day Two: Agility and Mobility

We’ve just wrapped Day Two at the Paris Air Show and much like the latest Parisian fashions, “agility” and “mobility” are all the rage. Today’s climate demands our collection of offerings is versatile,  runway-ready, with the ability to adjust on the fly, literally.

In this video Philippe Weber, Sr. Director, International Sales at Mercury explains how our RES series rackmount servers provide the latest in battle management resiliency and thrives in handling multi-domain combat operations. RES Mini fits in a brief case and is smaller and lighter than a carry-on.  Completely modular and composable. If that isn’t pret-a-porter, we’re not sure what is.

#PAS19: Cleared for Takeoff!

Day one of the Paris Air Show is in the books and it was all systems go. Our stand was packed with our product displays and partners from Daedalean attracting a crowd. Watch this short video of Daedalean’s Boris Videnov talking through their demo and you’ll see why.

The floor was overflowing and full of energy, and we at Mercury had our fair share of the action. Over the course of the day, we hosted over 30 of our valued customers and even scored a visit from Italy’s the Prime Minister , Giuseppe Conte! Other notables included: the AIA Roundtable with Ellen Lord conversations with Acting Air Force Secretary, Matthew Donovan and a meeting with Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Dr. Will Roper. We even ran into  President  Macron.

Tomorrow will be another full day. Stay tuned as we share some of the technology highlights from the floor!
