Harris Wins Deal from General Dynamics to Support NASA Satellites

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) signed a five-year, $140 million contract with General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) to support modernization of the ground segment of the satellite communications network used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

According to Harris, “Satellites and spacecraft in low-Earth orbit use the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) network to continuously relay data to ground stations in White Sands, New Mexico and in Guam. The modernization will improve situational awareness for TDRSS network operators, upgrade computing and signal processing equipment, enhance reliability and maintainability, improve efficiency, and reduce operations and sustainment costs.”

“This major satellite ground system win reconfirms our industry leadership in developing and sustaining satellite networks supporting high-priority missions for customers like NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Department of Defense, ” said Frank Van Rensselaer, vice president, NASA Programs, Harris Government Communications Systems. “This win also reflects a very successful, 50-year relationship with NASA.”
