The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded L3Harris Technologies a more than $14.6 million modification to a previously awarded contract issued by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command.  This $14,693,123 modification to exercise priced options puts the new total contract value at $61,180,747. 

This modification provides for the exercise of firm-fixed-price options for Commercial Broadband Satellite Program Unit Level Variant (ULV) hardware production units. ULV provides terminal-to-shore, space and terrestrial connectivity to increase throughput for commercial satellite communication and provides redundancy for military satellite communications. 

Work will be performed in Palm Bay, Florida, and is expected to be completed by August 2020. The Naval Information Warfare Systems Command in San Diego is the contracting activity.
