Harris Corporation received a $218 million follow-on contract from the US Army in December to continue providing mission-essential wideband satellite communications support.

Under the Wideband Satellite Communications Operations and Technical Support II contract, Harris will support global networks and operations centres at 21 sites, providing operations and maintenance, life-cycle engineering, on-site technical assistance, equipment installation, depot-level repair, logistics, cybersecurity, and training and sustainment.

Chris Forseth, VP and general manager, Harris Space Superiority, said: ‘Harris assists the army with all facets of wideband SATCOM support, helping to keep these global communications systems performing so that warfighters are protected and get the information they need to stay connected and ensure mission success.’
