L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) presented a $50,000 donation to the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation during the Sea-Air-Space Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, April 5. The donation supports a strategic corporate partnership between L3Harris and the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation to study and develop advanced naval warfighting concepts at the Naval Postgraduate School.
“The donation from L3Harris solidifies our shared commitment to national security and drives the development of warfighting solutions at the speed of relevance,” said Rich Patterson, NPS Foundation President and CEO. “As a leading innovator in the national security ecosystem, L3Harris’ donation will enhance NPS’ ability to transform ideas into scalable and world-changing solutions for defense, technology, energy, climate and more.”
L3Harris Technologies is a recognized leader in critical technologies for sea, air, land and space operations worldwide.
