L3Harris Technologies Awarded Contract to Modernize and Sustain US Space Force Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a $23 million contract to modernize and sustain critical space infrastructure used by the military to keep track of activities and objects in space. The current estimated contract value with the US Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center is $1.2 billion over 10 years.

Under the Maintenance Of Space Situational Awareness Integrated Capabilities (MOSSAIC) contract, L3Harris will provide sustainment services for current and future ground-based space domain awareness sensors and space battle management command and control capabilities. MOSSAIC is a follow-on program to the Systems Engineering and Sustainment Integrator program, which L3Harris won in 2002.

“Space as a warfighting domain has a complex and interdependent system supporting it from the ground, air and space,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “L3Harris supports our customers in each of these domains, giving us a unique understanding of the ecosystem and the mission, and enabling us to make quick modifications, provide necessary sustainment and introduce new capabilities.”

I-Connect007 Editor's Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

09/04/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
When compiling my Top Five, I tend to let the reader views guide my choices. Oh, sure, sometimes a news item is significant well beyond the reads it receives; that’s why this is an editor’s picks, not a strict Top Five. Still, readership habits inform my choices. That makes it even more interesting when a week demonstrates a theme so convenient as to seem contrived. Take this week, for example. In this week’s top five, four of the top five are news reports on mil-aero topics. You, dear readers, gobbled up the military and aerospace news this week. The outlier is, as we all would expect, a conference report from our very own Pete Starkey.
