(06 Apr 2022) L3Harris Technologies has been awarded US$117 million for option-year three of a U.S. Space Force and U.S. Space Command contract to continue maintaining and modernising infrastructure to track objects in space.

The Maintenance Of Space Situational Awareness Integrated Capabilities (MOSSAIC) programme has an estimated contract value of US$1.2 billion over 10 years.

L3Harris won the initial MOSSAIC contract in February 2020 to maintain and upgrade radar and optical sensors and command and control systems that provide timely, accurate space domain awareness data for military, civil and commercial users.
