NASA has awarded Harris two one-year options, adding $384 million of contract ceiling, to continue supporting the Space Communications Network Services (SCNS) program.

Harris will continue to support SCNS, which provides most of the communications and tracking services for a wide range of Earth-orbiting spacecraft, such as the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope and Earth Observing System satellites.

As prime contractor for SCNS, Harris also provided communications support to NASA’s Orion Exploration Flight Test-1 Mission in December 2015.
