Adam, you’re a Software Product Manager at Exelis. Could you tell us a bit about what the company does, and what your own role involves?
We’ve had some pretty big changes at Exelis in the last few weeks; As of May 29th 2015, Exelis was officially acquired by Harris Corporation. The combined Harris/Exelis acquisition (called Harris) is a pretty large defense company, that seems to do everything from night vision goggles to the next generation FAA control system for commercial flights, to communication radios. Our office in Rome, NY focuses primarily on information assurance and information protection. We started out years ago by building transfer devices for the Department of Defense (DoD) that would allow the automated transfer of data between networks of differing classification levels. In order to do our job effectively, we’ve had to understand all types of data.
