As the global leader in tactical radio, broadband networking and integrated vision solutions, L3Harris Technologies is well positioned to provide advanced capabilities to meet mission requirements while also bolstering regional industrial progress. In all corners of the globe, we align ourselves with our partner nations’ vision through in-country government, industrial and academic partnerships.
We embrace Transfer of Technology as the new way of doing business. We're open to and are already partnering with nations, teaching defense agencies how to manage projects and empowering them to modify the product to specific requirements.
This type of partnership sets the foundation for a cycle of mutual innovation and growth.
Business disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are just a recent example of how important in-country maintenance capabilities and resilient supply chains are to national sovereignty. In the Pacific, Europe and Latin America, L3Harris has created organizations with full sovereign capability for the products they repair and maintain, including training skilled in-country personnel to return equipment back into the field in the shortest time possible. Throughout the world, we are building capacity within countries to bring it closer to forces that will be in active combat.
We continually hire in-country talent to support sovereign engineering innovation for nations to create value-added solutions to meet specific customer requirements. Such modernization programs extend L3Harris’ long-term partnership with national defense organizations, supporting mission needs for advanced solutions and leveraging our expanded technical support capability in country.
We recently launched a new joint venture with a Middle Eastern firm to develop advanced communication, sensor and integrated mission systems capabilities in support of its nation’s armed and security forces – the first U.S. defense company to establish such a partnership in the country.
Together, we collaborate in areas – including technical and specialized operator and maintenance training, production transfer and technology transfer – through research and development programs in approved technologies.
The collaboration creates a path for the localization of L3Harris’ world-leading communication, sensor and integrated mission systems for land, air and maritime domains, in line with the Arabian Gulf nation’s long-term goals.
Additionally, L3Harris has a global supplier network, and we look to expand to key markets around the world to provide robustness and resiliency within our supply chain.
We support niche technologies individual nations provide, and we create partnerships with key markets to both enhance our solutions’ capabilities and provide job market growth within those countries.
L3Harris Technologies recognizes the opportunities that a robust, global defense industry presents. In L3Harris, nations have a trusted, experienced partner in one of the largest defense contractors in the world.
