Harris and L3 (Owner of EOTech, Among Many Properties) are Merging

A $33.5 billion dollar tech giant. The new L3 Harris Technologies will be a huge influence in the IT and communications portions of the DoD and DoJ.

The new tech merger puts expanded developmental power into the hands of two companies working on FAA security tech, fighter jet communication tech, cell tracking, night vision, and low visibility flight.

In a Sunday announcement, Kubasik said the transaction is intended to create a sixth prime government contractor. The five largest defense contractors — Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics — have dominated the U.S. defense market for years, each of them taking in more than $10 billion a year from the federal government. -From the Washington Post
