L3Harris Selected to Integrate and Accelerate US Space Force’s ATLAS Space Domain Awareness Project


MELBOURNE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) has been selected by the US Space Force to continue its efforts to upgrade and modernize its space domain awareness, which is used to counter anti-satellite threats.

The US Air Force began work in 2018 to replace the Space Defense Operations Center (SPADOC) with the Advanced Tracking and Launch Analysis System (ATLAS). L3Harris has developed applications in a new architecture that will allow ATLAS to scale and handle the exponential growth of commercial constellations, increasing debris, anti-satellite testing and adversarial threats. Today, L3Harris has been selected to integrate government equipment and oversee the deployment of the ATLAS application.

“Anti-satellite threats have increased and require attention now,” said Ed Zoiss, president, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “We are responding to the urgency by partnering with Space Force to modernize space domain awareness assets that are critical to understanding and acting on these threats.”

SPADOC became operational in the 1990s to monitor space objects, process space events like anti-satellite launches, and support flight operations safety.

L3Harris’ space superiority capabilities provide the foundation for controlling the space domain, protecting assets, and preserving strategic advantages. A trusted partner of the Space Force and other agencies, L3Harris has served the space superiority mission for over 30 years.
