Company Continues to Invest in Indigenous Capability Development
L3Harris Technologies has named Daniel Zoot as the new Corporate VP of L3Harris Technologies Japan. Zoot will establish L3Harris’ first corporate office in Tokyo, to help customers address their toughest technology and national security challenges.
Zoot brings nearly three decades of aerospace and defence experience to the new position – including more than 20 years in defence and space-based leadership roles in Japan. He most recently served as Director, Multi-Domain Effectors for Raytheon Missiles and Defense in Japan. Prior to that, he held roles with increasing responsibility in programme management, engineering and business development with Raytheon Technologies, Loral, and the US Navy.
“Establishing our Japan headquarters expands our ability to support the security needs of our allies and the safety of their warfighters,” commented Charles R Davis, VP, L3Harris International. “I look forward to working with Dan to establish strong partnerships and deliver end-to-end solutions that address our customers’ mission-critical needs.”
The company continues to be a major supplier of defence equipment and services to Japan’s MoD. With varied programmes and systems already in place within Japan, L3Harris’ investments have helped grow the local aerospace sector, creating jobs and driving innovation – creating a path to support development of Japan’s multi-domain defence capabilities.
