L3Harris Builds Counter Communications System Block 10.2 for Space Force

L3Harris Technologies has developed an updated version of the Counter Communications System designed to help the U.S. Space Force jam adversaries’ satellite communications, C4ISRNET reported Wednesday.

“It’s a deployable system basically for counter communications. Think of it as a platform that various custom missions run on,” Praveen Kurian, general manager of L3Harris’ space control division, said of CSS Block 10.2.

CCS Block 10.2 is a transportable electronic warfare platform that reached initial operating capability in March.

L3Harris is developing the next-generation of the CCS platform, called Meadowlands, under a $72M contract awarded in January. Kurian said Meadowlands production is expected to kick off in fiscal 2021.
