• Innoflight is part of L3Harris Technologies’ team producing 4 satellites for the Space Development Agency (SDA) Tracking Layer Tranche 0, ready for launch in 2022
  • Innoflight will be delivering key processing/networking avionics based on the CFC-400X

SAN DIEGO, CA, July 14, 2021 – Innoflight has been awarded multiple contracts from L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) for the delivery of key avionics for 4 satellites produced by L3Harris Technologies under the SDA Tracking Layer Tranche 0, consisting of 8 space vehicles total. This program will be the first generation of SDA’s Tracking Layer, an important step towards the development of a National Defense Space Architecture. The Tracking Layer satellites will provide global indications, warning, tracking, and targeting of advanced missile threats, including hypersonic missile systems. This capability encompasses space-based sensing, as well as algorithms, novel processing schemes, data fusion across sensors and orbital regimes, and tactical data products able to be delivered to the appropriate user.

Under its contracts with L3Harris Technologies, Innoflight will be delivering a total of 24 CFC-400X. Each space vehicle will be equipped with 3 CFC-400X covering the black side processing, red side processing and Battle Management, Command, Control, and Communications (BMC3) processing functions. The CFC-400X uses qualified parts and on-board mitigation methods to provide a reliable space-processing platform for small spacecraft in all orbits. It is equipped with a variety of Input Output (IO) interfaces, including Ethernet and SpaceWire interfaces.

“Innoflight is pleased to welcome L3Harris as a new customer,” said Vincent Gagnon, Innoflight Vice President, Business Development & Contracts. “Innoflight’s collaboration with 3 out of the 4 SDA Transport and Tracking Layers Tranche 0 prime contractors is a confirmation that our technology, across our 3 product lines, is well aligned with the SDA National Defense Space Architecture objectives for Tranche 0 and beyond.”
