Harris Awarded Third Option Year of NSOM Program

Harris Corporation has been awarded the third option year of its Network and Space Operations and Maintenance program by the U.S. Air Force, valued at $64 million.

Under this option, the firm will continue providing operations and maintenance support to the 50th Space Wing’s Air Force Satellite Control Network at locations around the world.

In January 2008, Harris was awarded the initial contract for the program, which included a six-month base contract and six one-year options for a total potential value of $416 million. The latest one-year option brings the overall value of the program to date to $218 million for Harris.

“Harris is proud to be a trusted partner for the U.S. Air Force on this mission,” said John Heller, president of Harris IT Services.  “The award of this option demonstrates our continued success delivering superior support to the 50th Space Wing for this critical network.”

The Harris-led NSOM team includes Lockheed Martin Information Technology, Faith Enterprises Incorporated, ASRC Aerospace, Arctic Slope World Services, Avaya Government Solutions, and Gunther Douglas.
