Harris Corporation is an American Florida-based international telecommunications equipment company that produces wireless equipment, electronic systems, and both terrestrial and spaceborne antennas for use in the government, defense, and commercial sectors. Headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, the company has approximately $5 billion of annual revenue and more than 14,000 employees — including nearly 6,000 engineers and scientists.The company is the largest private-sector employer in Brevard County, Florida . The company was the parent of Intersil . Most of the 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 division was sold to Teltronics. In 2009, Harris was one of the top 100 federal contractors.In January 2015, Wired Magazine ranked Harris Corporation -- tied with U.S. Marshals Service -- as the number two threat to privacy and communications on the internets.

Systems (100) and methods for co-channel separation of communication signals. The methods involve: simultaneously receiving a plurality of communication signals transmitted at disparate relative Doppler frequencies from different locations within a multi-access system; performing matched filtering operations to pre-process each of the plurality of communication signals so as to generate pre-processed digitized samples using a priori information contained in pre-ambles (302, 304) of messages present within the plurality of communication signals; using estimated signal parameters to detect the plurality of communication signals from the pre-processed digitized samples; and demodulating the plurality of communication signals without using a Viterbi decoder.


An electronic device may include a speaker, and audio circuitry coupled to the speaker. The audio circuitry may generate digitized samples of an audio waveform signal, and compare each digitized sample of the audio waveform signal to a threshold. The audio circuitry may when a given digitized sample is above the threshold, then apply a compression operation to the given digitized sample and successive digitized samples for a set time period, and when the given digitized sample is below the threshold and not within the set time period, then not apply the compression operation.


An optical filter device may include an optical fiber having a core and a cladding surrounding the core, the optical fiber having a tapered portion. The optical filter device may include an index selectable material surrounding the tapered portion and having an index of refraction being selectable based upon a physical characteristic. The optical filter device may include a device configured to change the index selectable material to select the index of refraction to selectively filter out a mode within the optical fiber.

Method and system for Single Event Latchup (SEL) current surge mitigation involves monitoring data signals for a protected device (106) and deriving from them a detected signature comprised of one or more detected signature vector components. The detected signature vector components are compared to previously stored signature vector components. Based on the comparing, the system selectively differentiates between the occurrence of standard power surges associated with normal operation of the protected device, and a non-standard current surge which requires cycling power of the protected device for continued proper functioning of the protected device.

Systems and methods for transducer volume bias control. The methods involve: obtaining an audio signal that is to be output from first and second transducers of an electronic device; and dynamically changing spectral content of the audio signal to at least one of the first and second transducers as a transducer volume level increases and decreases. The first transducer is disposed on a first side of the electronic device. The second transducer is disposed on a second side that is different than the first side of the electronic device. The first and second transducers have imbalanced capabilities.

A satellite system controller for a satellite system can comprise a receiving module, an interval selector, an epoch selector, and a scheduler. The receiving module can receive, from a transmission originator device, a set interval request message requesting the satellite system controller set a transmission interval and an epoch time for a satellite receiver, the transmission interval being an amount of time the satellite receiver is to remain in a sleep mode between expected transmissions and the epoch time being an instant at which the satellite receiver is to expect a satellite transmission. The interval selector can determine, based on the transmission interval, a sleep mode cycle for the satellite receiver. The epoch selector can select the epoch time according to the sleep mode cycle and the scheduler can schedule the satellite transmission with the satellite system at approximately the epoch time and according to the sleep mode cycle.


A communications system includes a sender device configured to send data packets in accordance with a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to a receiver device. An intermediate device is coupled between the sender device and the receiver device and includes a wireless transceiver configured to provide a communications link between the sender device and the receiver device and wherein said communications link is susceptible to at least one of transmission delays and transmission errors. A controller is coupled to the wireless transceiver and configured to serve as a TCP proxy between the sender device and the receiver device by sending successive simulated TCP acknowledgements of delivery to the sender device starting at a delay time shorter than a TCP retransmission timeout period and increasing for each successive simulated TCP acknowledgement.


An RF communications device may include a circuit board having a dielectric layer and conductive traces, one of the conductive traces defining a transmission line. The RF communications device may also include an RF transmitter carried by the circuit board and coupled to the transmission line, and RF switching circuits, each RF switching circuit including a substrate having a tapered proximal end coupled to the transmission line, and a distal end extending outwardly on the convex side of the transmission line. Each RF switching circuit may include a series diode, and a shunt diode coupled to the series diode, the series diode extending from the tapered proximal end and across an interior of the substrate.


A seismic modeling system may include a seismic model data storage device, and a processor cooperating with the seismic model data storage device to transform a seismic model spatial domain data set associated with a given region into a seismic frequency domain data set, where the given region includes a suspect region, transform a seismic model spatial domain data subset associated with the suspect region into a seismic frequency domain data subset, and perform inpainting of the seismic frequency domain data subset based upon the seismic frequency domain data set. The processor may further convert the inpainted seismic frequency domain data subset into an inpainted spatial domain data subset, and substitute the inpainted spatial domain data subset for the seismic model spatial domain data subset associated with the suspect region in the seismic model spatial domain data set associated with the given region.


A wireless engine monitoring system for an aircraft engine includes a housing and wireless transceiver that receives engine data, including engine data relating to environmental engine emissions. A processor processes the engine data and generates an alarm report when the environmental engine emissions exceed a threshold.
