Digital Engineering Helps L3Harris Rapidly Address Advanced Missile Threats
The U.S. is in a hypersonic arms race against Russia and China. As our near-peer adversaries develop and deploy advanced missiles, the ability to detect these lethal weapons has become crucial for the safety of our country and our allies. L3Harris is answering the call to rapidly deliver mission-critical missile defense capabilities to our nation's warfighters by merging our forward-leaning digital engineering approach, deep mission knowledge and expertise in infrared imaging.
Launching SLS to the Moon and Beyond: L3Harris’ Critical Role in the Artemis Missions
As the core stage and twin-solid rocket boosters propel the Space Launch System (SLS) off the launch pad, L3Harris’ avionics begin their journey that will last a short eight minutes. Those initial eight minutes are critical to propelling not only spacecraft but also humans out of Earth’s atmosphere and into orbit. From orbit, the upper stage continues the journey with in-space propulsion to set the spacecraft on a trajectory to reach the Moon and eventually Mars.
