Arctic Slope World Services & ASRC Aerospace on Winning Harris Team.

GREENBELT, Md. -- Arctic Slope World Services (ASWS) and ASRC Aerospace Corporation (ASRC Aerospace) are core members of Harris Corporation's Network and Space Operations and Maintenance (NSOM) contract. This essential space operations and maintenance contract was awarded to Harris Corporation by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) with a potential value of over $410M for a six and one half year period.

The Harris NSOM team will provide operations and maintenance support to the 50th Space Wing's Air Force Satellite Control Network at locations around the world. Arctic Slope World Services will assume responsibility for three USAF remote tracking stations and three Global Positioning System (GPS) sites, situated in the Pacific and other locations around the world. ASRC Aerospace Corporation will provide technical space operations and support services at Schriever AFB in Colorado.

Mr. Rich Ambrose, CEO of ASRC Federal Holding, emphasized "...this is an important win for us as it represents a significant opportunity to expand our support to our nation's military space program. We welcome Harris Technical Services Corporation's leadership for this major space services contract."

Under the NSOM contract, ASWS' and ASRC Aerospace's roles complement the support ASRC Federal Holding Company provides to multiple Department of Defense (DOD) customers. ASWS has delivered high levels of operations and maintenance services for Air Force Space Command 21st Space Wing, and for PACAF on the Alaska Radar System (ARS) and the Pacific Alaska Range Complex (PARC). ASRC Aerospace provides engineering development, operations and sustainment for the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center Space Development and Test Wing supporting complex experimental space programs.

ASWS and ASRC Aerospace are subsidiaries of Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) and are dedicated to providing comprehensive professional, technical, operation and maintenance, and engineering services. ASRC is an Alaska Native Corporation owned by more than 9,500 Inupiat Native Americans primarily located along Alaska's North Slope.
