  • Lockheed Martin reported a first quarter 2002 profit of $218 million, or $0.50/share, double of what the company reported in the same quarter a year ago. The company's Space Systems division had earnings of $122 million on $1.87 billion in sales, a third higher than the same quarter a year ago because of increased commercial launches and government satellite work.
