NASA has awarded Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) two 1-year options, adding $384 million of contract ceiling, to continue supporting the Space Communications Network Services (SCNS) program. The award was received during the third quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2016.

As prime contractor for SCNS, Harris also provided communications support to NASA’s successful Orion Exploration Flight Test-1 Mission in December 2015, which marked a critical step in NASA's return to human space exploration.
