Harris Completes Preliminary Design Review for Radar Satellite Payload

Harris Corp. has completed a two-day preliminary design review for a synthetic aperture radar satellite payload, which is a result of a previously awarded 30-month contract with Sierra Nevada Corporation.

The contract is part of NASA‘s rapid response space works and modular space vehicles program for the Defense Department‘s Operationally Responsive Space Office.

The payload is designed to give military commanders timely and high-resolution radar imagery. The SAR payload is capable of producing radar imagery of the earth’s surface during darkness and inclement weather, according to the company.

“The Harris team has successfully architected a flexible, modular RF payload that can support the ORS program office through a variety of RF missions and provide the Joint Force Commanders with the assets required to execute their missions,” said Bill Gattle, vice president of Harris space communications systems.
