MELBOURNE, FL/WASHINGTON, October 9, 2013 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a $65 million contract modification to provide worldwide satellite data and communications support to the U.S. Air Force's Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) and Global Positioning System antenna sites. Harris received the modification to its current Network and Space Operations and Maintenance contract, which supports the U.S. Air Force Space Command's 50th Space Wing.

Under the contract, a team led by Harris will continue to support both inbound and outbound data and communications for more than 150 Department of Defense satellites, operating and maintaining the AFSCN's antenna and ground system infrastructure at ten locations worldwide.
