Abstract: Let $ S = NA$ be a semidirect extension of a Heisenberg type nilpotent group $ N$ by the one-parameter group of dilations, equipped with the Riemannian structure, which generalizes this of the symmetric space. Let $ {\{ {P_a}(y)\} _{a > 0}}$ be a Poisson kernel on $ N$ with respect to the Laplace-Beltrami operator. Then every bounded harmonic function $ F$ on $ S$ is a Poisson integral $ F(yb) = f \ast {P_b}(y)$ of a function $ f \in {L^\infty }(N)$. Moreover the harmonic measures $ \mu _a^b$ defined by $ {P_b} = {P_a} \ast \mu _a^b,b > a$, are radial and have smooth densities. This seems to be of interest also in the case of a symmetric space of rank $ 1$.
