The company was formed in 1997 as L-3 Communications, to acquire certain business units from Lockheed Martin (which had previously been part of Loral Corporation). These business units had previously belonged to Lockheed Martin, Martin Marietta, General Electric (GE) and RCA. The founding members were Frank Lanza, Robert LaPenta and Lehman Brothers, which accounts for the name L3. In October 2018, it was announced that — subject to approval — L3 would be merged with Harris Corporation in mid-2019 to become L3 Harris Technologies, Inc. The new company will be based in Melbourne (Florida, USA), where Harris is currently headquartered.
