CINCINNATI. — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, today announced that several technical experts from the company have been selected as speakers for a new, three-day summit to examine advanced video technologies for defense and emergency response providers. The Military and Government Summit is being held April 21-23 during the 2009 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
