Usually when we think of defense stocks, we think of the major players that win the deals to build next generation fighters, or our newest aircraft carriers. Those companies are doing well, but they're in a different place than the stocks I want to talk about today. These are the second and third-tier players that either become subcontractors to the big guys or they win their own contracts.Either way, they are smaller and tend to grow faster in strong markets. This is a great time for their leveraged growth because they have nothing to do with a China trade war. They are domestically-driven firms with great prospects. * 10 Tech Stocks That Are Still Worth Your Time (And Money) The seven defense stocks to buy to fortify your portfolio are the top-rated defense stocks my Portfolio Grader has identified right now.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips ESCO TechnologiesESCO Technologies (NYSE:ESE) is a diversified manufacturer of mission critical fluid and electrical control systems, as well as a variety of other products for industries like aerospace and defense.

The bigger the craft, the bigger the need.All these systems need to be extremely durable and reliable. This is what ESE has built its reputation on.

FLIR SystemsFLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) has been around since the late 1970s. But it really got its start in the second Gulf War, when its forward-looking infrared radar (FLIR) was able to be deployed across the battle theater.From drones using FLIR cameras to soldiers with cameras mounted on their helmets, to robots looking for IEDs, this was the beginning of the next generation of modern tech entering war zones.Today, FLIR sports a $7 billion market cap as its once-whizbang technology is now standard operating procedure.
