L3Harris donates $50,000 to Naval Postgraduate School Foundation for research, innovation
The Naval Postgraduate School Foundation and L3Harris Technologies established a corporate partnership to support research and development at the Naval Postgraduate School, and to drive innovation and adoption of relevant defense capabilities.
"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. The donation to the NPS Foundation aligns with the recent establishment of the company's Agile Development Group (ADG), an innovation accelerator and collaboration initiative to rapidly address near-peer, national security threats.
"We are proud to support the Naval Postgraduate School and its mission to drive America's competitive advantage," said Dave Duggan, President, L3Harris Agile Development Group. "The ADG is tackling complex, front-end development to address our most urgent threats, with a goal to advance the technology edge across all domains."
NPS produces critical research output and the leaders with diverse perspectives and collaborative ideas to drive America's competitive advantage. The funds from L3Harris will be used to spur further innovation and support defense research and collaboration with NPS students and faculty across a spectrum of disciplines. It also enables experimentation with emerging technologies that support the Department of Defense's strategic priorities.
The Naval Postgraduate School Foundation is at the intersect of engagement with students, alumni, faculty, the broader DOD, and industry in addressing challenges and identifying opportunities that advance the capabilities of our nation. By funding defense innovation research, student and alumni programs, and NPS facilities and initiatives, the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation empowers NPS to develop leaders who think critically, navigate obstacles and anticipate the unknown, and to solve urgent and complex problems facing our Nation.
