Exelis products deliver data from high above the Earth to the palm of your hand

Use your smartphone to find a location, and you’re using technology created in Rochester. Same with those WorldView satellite images helping to guide the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet.

Ditto with global weather tracking systems, devices that helped provide security at the Super Bowl and some giant telescopes stationed around the world.

All thanks to a company named Exelis Inc., particularly its Geospatial Systems division on Rochester’s west side. And yes, it’s a confusing name, since there’s a health insurer in town by the name of Excellus. Despite the similar names, they have nothing to do with each other.
