      The U.S. Space Force awarded L3Harris a contract option worth up to $187 million to support military space domain awareness. The award announced Thursday is for option year five of the Maintenance Of Space Situational Awareness Integrated Capabilities program, known as MOSSAIC.

      MOSSAIC detects, tracks and identifies deep space objects to provide space surveillance information for military, civil and commercial users. L3Harris won the program in February 2020 to maintain and upgrade radar and optical sensors and command and control systems. The MOSSAIC program has an estimated contract value of up to $1.2 billion over 10 years. 

      “The MOSSAIC program is critical as it provides domain awareness for warfighters,” said Ed Zoiss, president of Space & Airborne Systems for L3Harris. “We’re proud to continue our work on this program and help the U.S. Space Force ensure safety, security and sustainability across the entire space domain.”
