Harris Corporation raking in contracts with US Air Force
Harris Corporation revealed that it has gained the fifth option year of its Network and Space Operations and Maintenance (NSOM) contract. The Company will continue to operate, maintain, and logistically support the global missions of the 50th Space Wing of the United States Air Force Space Command.
The NSOM contract dates back to 2008. Harris was tapped to handle inbound and outbound data and communications with Department of Defense satellites. With its contract renewed for another year, the Company will keep on operating and maintaining the equipment of the Air Force Satellite Control Network at 10 locations around the world.
Snagging the one-year option nets Harris an additional $66 million. The Company has earned $351 million so far out of a potential total value of $418 million for a six-and-a-half year contract.
That isn’t the end of the good news for the Company. Harris also won an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the US Air Force for $85 million worth of Falcon multiband manpack tactical radios and accessories. It has already received initial delivery orders of $33 million for the Falcon 3 AN/PRC-117G across ground units, which will be used by the USAF as its new-generation radio platform for tactical voice and wideband data communications.
