Harris consolidates business sectors

MELBOURNE, Fla., April 12 (UPI) -- Florida-based Harris Corp. has combined its commercial and government Full Motion Video initiatives to accelerate ISR Solutions, the company announced.

The FMV team will focus on government customers' needs, promote the rapid development of more advanced intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, and accelerate the deployment of these solutions to assist analysts in the field to manage the massive amounts of sensor intelligence data being collected, the company said.


"We are responding to the increased demand from the ISR and federal law enforcement community for end-to-end FMV solutions across the process-exploit-disseminate work flow," said Sheldon Fox, group president, Harris Government Communications Systems. "The Harris FMV team combines the products and technologies from our broadcast business with the technical capabilities, engineering and program management expertise from our government communications business.

"The result is an extremely focused organization with an increased investment in motion imagery, analytics, and the fusion of metadata with content to create actionable intelligence."

The new Harris FMV organization will support all U.S. government, international military and federal law enforcement activities for the Harris Full Motion Video Asset Management Engine, or FAME, architecture and related technologies and capabilities from across Harris.


FAME is a collaborative platform that provides video, audio and metadata coding, video analytics, and archive capabilities – all within a unified digital asset management solution.
