The U.S. government is modernizing every facet of its strategic nuclear force, the first comprehensive update to its strategic nuclear arsenal since the Cold War ended three decades ago.

Hundreds of companies will ultimately reap revenues from the process, but four companies will be the biggest beneficiaries: Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and RTX.
