L-3 Communications Holdings
As the military redoubles its emphasis on intelligence, L-3 is playing a bigger role than ever in the defense business. Spun off from Lockheed Martin eight years ago, the company has made a name for itself in night-vision gear, secure communications, and satellite controls. And, with its pending deal to acquire Titan Corp. for $2.65 billion, it can tap the growing demand for intelligence software.
All the while, the company continues to manufacture the black boxes that record airplane-flight data.
