I'd like to take a few minutes to highlight an important achievement in the quarter. Our standard missile 3 had 2 successful intercept test, one on May 9 and the other on June 27. These intercepts, which had been compared to a bullet hitting a bullet outside the atmosphere demonstrate a critical capability for the United States and our allies. Another example of how Raytheon continues to provide some of the world's most advanced technologies to meet our customers most pressing needs.In terms of contract awards, we received an order for the next block of Multi-Spectral Targeting System for the U.S. Air Force Reaper, UAV in the quarter. The MTS-B, as it's called, is a multi-use electro-optical infrared sensor that also provides target acquisition. This is basically the round ball that many of you see on the predator and reaper drones, and it's just one of the many products across Raytheon that leverage our core EO/IR capabilities.
