Harris Corporation has received a $25m contract from the US Air Force to modernise the missile systems of the US Space and Missile Systems Center’s Space Superiority Systems Wing at Los Angeles Air Force Base in California.

The Space Superiority Systems Wing delivers and sustains space control systems that maintain space superiority for the US.

The upgrade will also include ground terminal systems that provide offensive and defensive counter-space and space situation awareness capabilities.

Harris will lead a team including Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems and General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems.
