U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) awarded L3Harris Technologies a five-year-with-options $100 million contract to upgrade and extend the service life of its existing fleet of about 550 L3Harris very small aperture terminals (VSAT). The contract was received in December.

L3Harris will provide software, hardware and warranty upgrades that will extend the life of existing Hawkeye III Lite VSAT terminals and deliver significant cost savings. The VSATs provide vital communications reach back capability to SOCOM headquarters and other government entities.

“This agreement extends the service life of our customer’s existing terminals and highlights the priority USSOCOM places on ensuring their deployed users are equipped with the latest in VSAT technology,” said Chris Aebli, president, global communications systems, L3Harris.
