- A $105.1 million contract modification exercising a fourth option year of work on its U.S. Air Force MILSATCOM Orbital Operations and Logistics Sustainment Support contract, under which Lockheed supports the operations of the Milstar and Defense Satellite Communications Systems. Lockheed will continue working on this contract through Nov. 30, 2014.
- And also a new $13.3 million cost-plus-fixed-fee order to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with eight redesigned Turret Electronic Unit prototypes for use in fire control systems known as the AN/AAQ-30(A) Target Sight Systems, or TSS. This equipment will be used in the USMC's H-1 Upgrades Program, in which AH-1Z Cobra attack helicopters are remanufactured to convert them into AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters. The TSS is due for delivery by April 2016. The TSS provides target identification and tracking, as well as passive targeting for integrated weapons, including Hellfire missiles, and also a laser designation capability to illuminate targets for laser-guided weapons.

I like things that go "boom." Sonic or otherwise, that means I tend to gravitate towards defense and aerospace stocks. But to tell the truth, over the course of a dozen years writing for The Motley Fool, I have covered -- and continue to cover -- everything from retailers to consumer goods stocks, and from tech to banks to insurers as well. Follow me on Twitter or Facebook for the most important developments in defense & aerospace news, and other great stories besides.
