Space Superiority Sustainment

The dependability of the related systems is integral to space superiority. Harris helps to protect America’s space assets with innovative system development, effective system integration across the enterprise, and world-class sustainment engineering and information technology services for the space superiority mission.

Effective Life-cycle Management

Harris' budget-minded viewpoint and more than 50 years of expertise in government systems design and integration enable us to provide meaningful life-cycle cost analysis services and implementation plans. Never compromising on saftey or quality, our dynamic and collaborative approach ensures systems continue to increase their warfighting capabilities over time through effective management—even as budgets decrease. We plan and transition systems using proven templates that incorporate emerging technologies in a cost-effective manner and implement transition solutions that reduce risk while delivering greater operational benefits. We co-locate with our customer to ensure the seamless transition to long-term sustainment. 

A Single, Integrated Architecture Approach

Space dominance demands architecting expertise that enhances joint capabilities at the top level, while supporting system development and support at lower levels. Harris’ model-based architecture process delivers a single, integrated architecture across all levels. The results are rapid discovery, sharing, and reuse of architectural data across enterprise boundaries for complete architecture awareness and life-cycle cost savings—from fielding to maintenance. When the useful life of a developmental prototype must be extended, Harris is ready to move fast. Our specialized rapid reaction capability maximizes the existing investment and lets us turn a system designed for short-time use or testing into one that provides years of operational value.

We work with rapid-prototyping organizations so that cycles are short, then apply a unique Harris process that ensures all the key “abilities”—sustainability, compatibility, interoperability, dependability, and availability—are in place.
