L3Harris Space Reflectors Successfully Deploy on the Largest Commercial Satellite

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) successfully deployed reflectors onboard the Hughes JUPITER™ 3 ultra high-density satellite to provide HughesNet® internet access across the Americas and to support enterprise networks, in-flight Wi-Fi, cellular backhaul and community Wi-Fi solutions.  

“L3Harris designed and delivered four reflectors for the largest commercial communications satellite ever built,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “In the fast-paced, complex world of satellite communications, customers need solutions that decrease mission risk and cost while answering the call to deliver data at higher speeds in the most remote locations. Our space antennas do exactly that.”

L3Harris is a supplier of large reflector apertures and deployable mesh reflector-feed antenna systems for UHF-Band through K-Band and all orbital regimes. The reflectors also feature a mesh-reflective surface that maximizes antenna gain and provides improved performance required for mobile media services.
