Compare tool: Lockheed Martin vs. Top 10
The U.S. government's largest defense contractor boosted sales of satellites and transport planes, while continuing to develop the new F-35 stealth fighter jet, on a $300 billion contract.

But there's trouble over the ridge: Last year the Pentagon cut missile and satellite programs and canceled Lockheed contracts for a communications satellite and the U.S. presidential helicopter. It also expects Lockheed Martin to start sharing the F-35's ballooning costs, putting the company in the hot seat for 2010.--J.S.
