History

The history of L3Harris | ForceX parallels the history and development of advanced Situational Awareness (SA) and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR).

The name “ForceX” comes from the term Force Multiplier, which refers to a factor (ForceX mission management software) that dramatically increases – hence "multiplies"– the effectiveness of an item or group.

ForceX was founded in 2004 by a veteran of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment known as the “Night Stalkers.” Seeking to modernize and eliminate the deficiencies of available mission planning systems, the company looked to graphic-intense gaming software to develop an initial ‘core’ engine to process complex maps. This multithreaded, multiview-enabled engine, now known as AGAME (advanced geospatial application media engine), fuses real-time information into maps and video allowing exact target locations to be shared seamlessly between flight and ground crews. This software development kit is one of many tools L3Harris | ForceX can leverage to provide cutting-edge, high-performance solutions.

ForceX became part of L3 Technologies, Inc. in 2015.
