A Commitment to Innovation
Innovation is at the very core of Harris Corporation, and has been for more than 120 years. Harris’ very existence came from the need to create new technology that was more advanced than what existed, tackling new challenges and changing an industry. That first technology – a better, faster printing press in the late 1800s – paved the way for Harris to continue to build its reputation on innovation.
Harris created the communications technology used by the earliest astronauts to speak to mission control. The company also produces the most advanced battlefield communications networks that help keep fighting men and women safe when they are in harm’s way. Similar technology is used to keep law enforcement, firefighters and other first responders connected in the field. Harris led the way in high-definition television, smartphone fingerprint biometrics, the electronics that enabled Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System technology.
The dedication to innovation is reflected in Harris making an industry-leading investment in research and development to ensure the company will continue to lead the way in next-generation technology.
“Continually pushing the boundaries of technology through innovation has always been an essential part of Harris’ culture,”
Harris Chairman, President and CEO
