MELBOURNE, Fla.

Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has been awarded $106 million in follow-on contract options to sustain ground-based systems that support the U.S. missile warning, missile defense and space surveillance missions.

Harris will continue to sustain ground-based systems that support six unique weapon systems in 12 locations under the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s System Engineering and Sustainment Integrator (SENSOR) contract. SENSOR was awarded in 2002 as a five-year base contract with up to 13 earned option years. This award represents the tenth option year.

Under the agreement, Harris provides all the support required – including depot-level maintenance, repairs and upgrades, contractor logistics support and more – to ensure the weapon systems are continually available and capable.

“These systems are critical to helping keep the U.S. and its allies safe,” said Bill Gattle, president, Harris Space and Intelligence Systems. “We are privileged to be entrusted to sustain these resources that protect our nation and aid our customer’s mission.”
