Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H.

Shipments in the first quarter consisted of a more traditional mix of encryption system products, including our DSD72A-SP bulk encryption systems for Taiwan, IP encryption systems for satellite communications in the Mid-East, logistics support equipment for a customer in Africa, a corporate communications suite providing IP and cellular encryption services for a customer in the United States, as well as additional deliveries for Afghanistan.
