A new entry in the top ten, as compared with FY18 results, is L3Harris Technologies, which was formed from the merger of L3 Technologies and Harris in mid-2019.

Next year, the new Raytheon Technologies, formed through the merger of Raytheon and United Technologies Corp, will take the number two or three position.  Pro forma for FY19, this new operation would have had $25.2 billion in obligated dollars, ranking it as number three, just behind Boeing.
