The company focuses on expanding its presence in high-growth regions such as Latin America and the Middle East. Over 50% of the revenue of the company is generated from outside the US, which implies that Honeywell has a strong position in the international market. In September 2019, Honeywell International was awarded a USD 7.7 million contract for Inertial Navigation Kits for the US Army, which uses motion and rotation sensors to continuously calculate by dead reckoning the position, the orientation, and the velocity of a moving object without the need for external references.

Raytheon has its main focus on the aerospace & defense industry. It faces competition from a number of small and large enterprises in the North American region. The company designs and manufactures defense electronics and space systems including sensors for military applications and platforms. It also offers information technology solutions and technical services. Raytheon has adopted the strategies of mergers & acquisitions and joint ventures to strengthen its position in the global defense sector. Increasing defense spending across the globe is expected to provide several opportunities for the company to increase its revenue and profitability. For instance, in November 2019, Raytheon designed Pit Boss, an autonomous mission management sensor system for DARPAs Blackjack satellite constellation. It will network sensors together with a goal to provide persistent global coverage for many applications, including missile warning.

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 ha ve 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. In May 2020, Lockheed Martin was awarded a ceiling USD 485 million contract for the Department of Defense and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Sniper, Infrared Search, and Track (IRST); and Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) navigation pod (fixed wing) hardware production.
