ITT Exelis Expecting More Cuts

The cuts will be in Roanoke which currently employs about 1000 people, per Jared Adams, director of communications for ITT Exelis’ Geospatial Systems division. More details are expected next week.

Due to anticipated U.S. defense government procurement reductions, we have experienced an impact on the size and frequency of night vision contracts, This impact has resulted in a need for the Exelis Roanoke facility to adjust production capacity and employee headcounts.

The geospatial division includes the sensors, software and night vision products areas.

ITT Exelis Geospatial Systems, headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., is a global supplier of innovative night vision, remote sensing and navigation solutions that provide sight and situational awareness at the space, airborne, ground and soldier levels.
