L3Harris Secures $134M in Contracts to Support US Space Domain Ground Trackers

L3Harris Technologies announced that it has won two contracts valued at up to $134 million in support of the Department of Defense’s ground-based space surveillance and command centers

Secured under the U.S. Space Force’s Maintenance of Space Situational Awareness Integrated Capabilities program, one of the contracts calls for updating the Ground-Based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance telescopes located at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and Maui. 

The telescopes’ upgrades are aimed at a more resilient and persistent tracking of deep space objects, such as geostationary communication satellites, to provide space domain awareness and readiness across the DOD.

The other contract covers Space Fence radar maintenance in the Marshall Islands, L3Harris said Thursday

The Space Fence contract focuses on helping enable accurate maps and measurements of space objects, including satellites and space debris mainly in low-Earth orbit. It also supports the program’s space weather monitoring and examining foreign launches, according to L3Harris.

The company first got into the MOSSAIC program in February 2020 through a 10-year contract with a potential $1.2 billion value.
