The new chief executive of L3Harris Technologies will seek to broaden the contractor's international work, the company said today.

In a press release, L3Harris said Chris Kubasik, who assumed the CEO role yesterday, sees the company as ready "to grow its global presence."

About 20% of L3Harris' sales today come from international customers.

In the release, Kubasik said he looks "forward to travelling again to develop new partnerships and to expand existing relationships, helping our allies overcome their toughest technology challenges."

L3 said it is using its "research and development investments to create exportable solutions for international markets across all domains -- air, land, sea, space, and cyber -- with emphasis on communication modernization, aircraft missionization, fighter aircraft upgrades and expansions, maritime expansion and autonomy, and multi-domain integration."
