HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ United Technologies Corp. says third-quarter profit edged up 1 percent on a slight increase in revenue, but warned that a weak military aerospace market will cut into 2013 revenue.

The Hartford, Conn., aerospace and building systems conglomerate said Tuesday that net income for the three months ended Sept. 30 was $1.43 billion, or $1.57 per share, including 2 cents per share from discontinued operations

Revenue of $15.46 billion for the quarter was up 3 percent over the year-ago quarter.

Analysts polled by FactSet, on average, expected earnings of $1.54 per share on revenue of $16.21 billion.

United Technologies cut its revenue estimate for 2013 to about $63 billion from $64 billion, citing weak military aerospace markets and the slow economic recovery in Europe. Analysts expected $63.85 billion.
