Harris Receives US Army SATCOM Contract for $218 Million

Harris has received a US army follow-on contract worth $218 million to support wideband satellite operations centers and management sites delivering critical communications.

The Wideband Satellite Communications Operations and Technical Support II (WSOTS-2) contract will support global networks and operations centers at 21 sites, providing operations and maintenance, life-cycle engineering, on-site technical assistance, equipment installation, depot-level repair, logistics, cyber security, and training and sustainment.

Harris assists the Army with all facets of wideband SATCOM support, helping to keep these global communications systems performing so that warfighters are protected and get the information they need to stay connected and ensure mission success. The contract leverages Harris’ 30-plus-year legacy of providing ground systems, on-orbit assets and global communications networking to the Army and other customers, including most recently, executing the first WSOTS $160 million contract.
