Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) is a Florida-based international communications equipment company that produces wireless equipment, electronic systems, and both terrestrial and spaceborne antennas for use in the government, defense, and commercial sectors. It is also the largest private-sector employer in Brevard County, Florida (~6400 of 15000+ company-wide). The company was the parent of Intersil (Harris Semiconductor). Most of the numerous wireless start-ups in South Brevard County were founded and are staffed by former Harris Corporation engineers and technicians. The company's Digital Telephone Systems (DTS) division was sold to Teltronics.

It is one of the top 100 federal contractors.

The "Harris Automatic Press Company" was founded in Niles, Ohio in 1895. They spent the next 60 years developing lithographic processes and printing presses before acquiring Intertype Corporation and Gates Radio, once a major producer of broadcast electronics, in 1957, expanding their reach into broadcasting and typesetting. In 1959, they acquired PRD Electronics of Brooklyn, New York, gaining microwave technology. In 1967, they merged with Radiation, Inc. of Melbourne, Florida, a developer of antenna, integrated circuit, and modem technology used in the space race: the semiconductor business that later became Intersil in 1999 was born of this development, and the company headquarters was moved from Cleveland to Melbourne in 1978. In 1969, Harris Corporation acquired RF Communications and Farinon, furthering its microwave assets. The printing operations were sold off in 1983 and are now known as GSS Printing Equipment. GSS Printing Equipment later acquired Lanier Worldwide, which itself was spun off from Harris Corporation in the late 1990s.
