Harris Corporation

Harris Corporation is an American communications company and defense contractor that produces wireless equipment, tactical radios, electronic systems, night vision equipment and both terrestrial and spaceborne antennas for use in the government, defense and commercial sectors. Headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, the company has approximately $8 billion of annual revenue and more than 23,000 employees — including 9,000 engineers and scientists.

The company is the largest private-sector employer in Brevard County, Florida (approximately 6000). The company was the parent of Intersil (Harris Semiconductor). Most of the wireless start-ups in South Brevard County were founded and are staffed by former Harris Corporation engineers and technicians. The company's Digital Telephone Systems (DTS) division was sold to Teltronics.

In June 2015, Harris acquired Exelis Inc. and subsequently reorganized the company.

In 2014, Harris was named one of the top 100 federal contractors by Defense News.

In January 2015, Wired Magazine ranked Harris Corporation — tied with U.S. Marshals Service — as the number two threat to privacy and communications on the Internet.
