Harris Corp. is realigning its operating business units, creating the Integrated Network Solutions unit to provide IT and managed services, cyber integration, interoperability, imaging, and digital media management solutions to support government, energy, health care, broadcast, and enterprise networks.
The goal is to be able to focus more sharply on Harris’ current markets and address the fast-growing global market for integrated communications and IT services, a company statement today said.
The three Harris segments are:
The new Integrated Network Solutions will consist of Harris IT Services, Harris CapRock Communications, Healthcare Solutions, and Cyber Integrated Solutions businesses – all of which previously were part of the Government Communications Systems segment – and the Broadcast Communications business. The segment will leverage the company's expanding technology and service capabilities – along with its growing global presence – to provide integrated solutions that meet individual customer and market needs.
RF Communications: There will be no change in this segment, which includes the Tactical Communications and Public Safety and Professional Communications businesses, which provides tactical and land mobile radios, systems and networking applications for global defense, security, public safety and public service, transportation, and utility markets.
Government Communications Systems will group together the Civil Programs, Defense Programs and National Intelligence Programs businesses. The segment will provide communications, IT and systems integration for mission-critical government applications.
“This strategic business realignment will enable each of our segments to more effectively combine technologies, products and services from throughout the company into integrated solutions tailored for the specific markets that they serve,” Howard Lance, Harris chairman, president and CEO, said in the announcement.
Harris Corp., of Melbourne, Fla., ranks No. 13 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
