Justice Department Requires Harris and L3 to Divest Harris’s Night Vision Business to Proceed with Merger

06/19/2019: Department of Justice Antitrust

“The merger, as originally structured, would have given the combined company a monopoly over image intensifier tubes, an essential component in night vision devices used by the United States military,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division.  “Today’s settlement will ensure that our armed forces continue to benefit from competition for a mission critical component that soldiers operating in low-light environments rely on every day.”
