Streamlined Restructuring Follows 2019 Merger
L3Harris Technologies has restructured its business, moving from four divisions to three, effective 3 January.
The Melbourne, FL-headquartered company was formed in 2019 from the merger of L3 Systems and Harris Technologies. The new structure is based around three business segments: Integrated Mission Systems, Space and Airborne Systems, and Communication Systems.
The new structure appears to reinforce the company’s space business and comparatively deprioritises its work in the air domain – its Aviation Systems business is no longer a division in its own right. The company has sold off a number of aviation-focused businesses, while its space business – particularly its smallsat manufacturing – has grown.
The air-focused segments that remain within the company are divided between the IMS and S&AS divisions. The company’s commercial avionics products are now part of the IMS division while its military avionics and air-traffic management programmes fall under the S&AS division.
“Our customers and partners know L3Harris brings to bear cutting-edge capabilities to tackle some of our most complex national security problems,” company vice chair and CEO, Christopher E. Kubasik, stated. “Our business segments will continue to lead market innovation in their focus areas, fueling advanced solutions for the toughest operational challenges. Our intent remains clear: be the trusted disruptor for US, allied, and partner national security endeavors. This lean approach will deliver resilient, innovative, end-to-end solutions that propel timely mission success for our customers.”
