US Space Force extends space domain awareness partnership with L3Harris

L3Harris Technologies has received an award of option year five of the Maintenance Of Space Situational Awareness Integrated Capabilities (MOSSAIC) programme. The contract, worth up to USD187 million from the US Space Force, continues the modernisation and sustainment of critical space infrastructure enabling the Space Force core competency of space domain awareness. 

In support of the U.S. military’s space surveillance and command centres in Colorado, California and Virginia, MOSSAIC detects, tracks and identifies deep space objects to provide timely and accurate space surveillance information for military, civil and commercial users.

L3Harris will perform modifications and upgrades to all systems under the option year five contract of the MOSSAIC programme, including generating rich sensor metadata to help transition to a dynamic and responsive tasking approach required for tactical space domain awareness.

The MOSSAIC programme has an estimated contract value of up to USD1.2 billion over 10 years. This contract builds on a previous USD23 million award that L3Harris won in February 2020 to maintain and upgrade radar and optical sensors and command and control systems that provide space domain awareness data for military, civil and commercial users. Subsequent option year awards have enabled L3Harris to perform maintenance and upgrades to space domain ground systems.
