Lockheed Martin is a global aerospace and security company. It continuously carries out R&D activities for developing various cutting-edge technologies related to the defense sector. The company is a major contractor for the upgrade and purchase of maritime systems for the US Navy. It faces major challenges in terms of overpricing its products as compared to its competitors. A major portion of the revenue of Lockheed Martin is generated from defense contracts received from the US, and hence, defense budget cuts of the country have a direct impact on the growth of the company. Moreover, changing government policies and federal regulations also have an impact on the revenue of the company. Lockheed Martin Corporation is developing a tactical high power operational responder, which is an electromagnet capable of bringing down enemy UAVs by firing electromagnetic pulses.
Northrop Grumman Corporation is a prime contractor for high-priority defense and government service technology programs in the US. It also conducts business with local, state, and foreign governments, along with international customers in the commercial sector. Northrop Grumman Corporation is one of the leaders in the design, development, and production of autonomous systems, including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems for tactical and strategic missions.
