L3Harris performs all acousto-optics research, design, development and testing of new solutions in-house. With a heavy investment in state-of-the-art optical communications and electronic equipment, we have the right tools for the job. Our facilites feature ten optics laboratories, three electronic laboratories, and over 4,000 square feet of optical component fabrication facilities enabling grinding, polishing, optical surface metrology, vacuum-deposition, reactive-ion milling and bonding, and high-precision, specialty machining. In combination with work performed for the government and other commercial companies, L3Harris independently researches new solutions for the telecom and defense industries.
