Space Launch System Booster Obsolescence and Life Extension program


L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) announced a $27 million contract to support NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) Booster Obsolescence and Life Extension program. Developed and manufactured by Northrop Grumman, the solid rocket boosters power the rocket at launch.

L3Harris’ role on the program includes system control performance during the lifecycle of the enhanced solid rocket boosters from lift off to separation for future SLS flights in the Block 2 configuration. L3Harris technology addresses booster obsolescence and environmental impacts at launch, while enabling a safer first two minutes of flight.

We speak with Kristin Houston, President, Electro Optical, L3Harris.

L3Harris has produced highly reliable launch avionics and space communication products for more than 60 years. The new award extends the company’s current Artemis contract supporting the design, development and testing of next-generation avionics for the five-segment solid rocket boosters, supplementing and replacing the eight remaining reusable Space Shuttle Program-era assets.
