L3Harris Technologies received a $125 million multi-year contract to produce space electronic warfare systems that safeguard U.S. military operations and warfighters.

Under the Meadowlands production program, L3Harris will upgrade 16 Block 10.2 versions of Counter-Communications Systems (CCS) operating in Peterson Space Force Base, Colorado, Vandenburg Space Force Base, California, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida., and multiple international locations.

“Successful space operations depend on dominating the electromagnetic spectrum. Denying our enemies the ability to use their space assets protects U.S. warfighter operations.” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris.

The current generation CCS Block 10.2, also developed by L3Harris, reached Initial Operating Capability in March 2020, making it the first offensive weapon system accepted by the US Space Force. L3Harris began development of the next-generation Meadowlands upgrade in 2019 under the Combat Mission Systems Support contract.

CCS Block 10.2 is the Space Force’s only ground-based space control platform providing warfighters with modular open-standards for electronic warfare. L3Harris is at the forefront of providing tools that enable or deny the electromagnetic spectrum in the contested environment. Meadowlands is just one of a number of capabilities offered by the company that protect U.S. forces and ensure any potential adversaries are at a disadvantage in the space domain.

L3Harris Technologies is an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers’ mission-critical needs. The company provides advanced defense and commercial technologies across space, air, land, sea and cyber domains.

L3Harris has approximately $18 billion in annual revenue and 47,000 employees, with customers in more than 100 countries.
