Software-defined technology developer Innoflight will deliver key avionics for four satellites produced by L3Harris Technologies under the terms of a new contract the two organizations announced July 15.

L3Technologies represents a new customer for Innoflight. Innoflight will deliver key avionics for four satellites produced by L3Harris Technologies under the U.S. Space Development Agency‘s (SDA) Tracking Layer Tranche 0, consisting of eight space vehicles total. This program will be the first generation of SDA’s Tracking Layer, an important step towards the development of a National Defense Space Architecture. The Tracking Layer satellites will provide global indications, warning, tracking, and targeting of advanced missile threats, including hypersonic missile systems.

Innoflight produces software-defined compact/ground radios, cryptographic and cyber secure systems and processing, networking and data storage avionics. Its core competency is secure Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) systems designed through the implementation of modern Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology.

“Innoflight’s collaboration with three out of the four SDA Transport and Tracking Layers Tranche 0 prime contractors is a confirmation that our technology, across our three product lines, is well aligned with the SDA National Defense Space Architecture objectives for Tranche 0 and beyond,” Vincent Gagnon, Innoflight Vice President, Business Development & Contracts said in a statement.
