HARRIS REALIGNS AVIONICS BUSINESS AREAS
HARRIS REALIGNS AVIONICS BUSINESS AREAS PALM BAY, Fla., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris Corporation's
Electronic Systems Sector announced plans to realign its business area associated with Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) and Test Program Sets (TPS) for avionics systems with its Government Aerospace Systems Division (GASD), a leading supplier of avionics systems, effective Nov. 21.
Dr. Allen S. Henry, president of the Electronic Systems Sector, said, "This move is a natural fit with current programs and future technology initiatives and places us in an even stronger position to continue to provide high technology programs that meet the needs of both our avionics systems and avionics support systems customers." Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has, for many years, supplied ATE and TPS through its Government Support Systems Division in Orlando, Fla. Government Aerospace Systems Division in Palm Bay, Fla. has been a leader in the military aerospace electronics business for 30 years and is currently under contract to provide state-of-the-art avionic systems on the F-22, F-117 and RH-66 (Comanche). Charles J. Herbert, vice president and general manager of Government Aerospace Systems Division said, "In today's environment competitive companies leverage their strengths. The new alignment will guarantee our customers a substantial resource base and combine modern technology for ATE and TPS with broad, deep expertise in systems engineering, software and hardware, reliability and maintainability, quality assurance, manufacturing, program controls, and life cycle support. Our commitment to supporting operational deployment of high technology, portable, down-sized test program sets is expanded by this change." Programs and personnel associated with the ATE and TPS business activity will remain in Orlando. A management team will direct all aspects of the transition to minimize its impact on customers, programs and employees.
Management and administrative personnel freed up by the consolidation will generally be absorbed by elements of the Electronic Systems Sector in Palm Bay.
Harris Electronic Systems Sector conducts advanced research studies, develops prototypes, and produces a broad range of state-of-the-art systems for government agencies and commercial organizations worldwide. Harris Corporation, with worldwide sales of more than $3 billion, is focused on four major businesses: electronic systems, communications, semiconductors and Lanier Worldwide office equipment. -0- 11/12/92 /CONTACT: Pat Bowers, senior manager of Harris Corporation's Electronic Systems Sector communications, 407-727-4234/ (HRS) CO: Harris Corporation's Electronic Systems Sector ST: Florida IN: ARO SU:
