Harris Corporation Government Services Business becomes Peraton

Peraton has been confirmed as the new name of the former Harris Corporation Government Services business, which was acquired by Veritas Capital earlier this year, the company said.

Peraton is based on the idea that the operations the company supports are essential to national security. The name is a construct of the prefix “per,” which means “thoroughly,” and the word “imperative,” reflecting the importance of our customers´ missions.

The company responds to rapidly evolving challenges in the national security market with innovative solutions. Peraton experts, scientists, and engineers are entrusted to partner with government customers to overcome critical challenges and deliver high-quality results in Space, Intelligence, Cyber/SIGINT, Homeland Security, Defense, and Communications markets.

Peraton provides innovative, reliable solutions to the nation´s most sensitive and mission-critical programs and systems. Peraton has significant experience providing highly differentiated secure communications, space, and technology solutions to key customers, and has become a trusted partner on missions that are critical to the security priorities of the United States. The company is headquartered in Herndon, VA, with approximately 3,500 employees across the US and Canada.
