Cash provided by operations in the third quarter was $45.9 million. During the quarter, the Company repurchased 4 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $25.15 per share.

Revenue from the Company's Commercial Systems division increased 16% from the third quarter of 2010, to $196.4 million. Within the Commercial Systems division, revenue from the Thermal Vision and Measurement segment was $161.0 million, an increase of 22% over the third quarter combined results of Thermography and Commercial Vision Systems last year. Commercial Systems' Raymarine segment contributed $35.4 million of revenue during the quarter.

Revenue from the Company's Government Systems division increased 7% over the third quarter of 2010, to $174.9 million. Within the Government Systems division, revenue from the Surveillance segment was $139.8 million, a decrease of 14% from the third quarter of 2010 results of the Company's legacy Government Systems business. Revenues from Government Systems' other two segments, Detection and Integrated Systems were $21.2 million and $13.9 million, respectively.

The Company's backlog of firm orders for delivery within the next twelve months was approximately $546 million at September 30, 2011, an increase of $60 million during the quarter. Backlog in the Government Systems division was $374 million, increasing $55 million during the quarter. Backlog in the Commercial Systems division was $172 million, up $6 million during the quarter.

Our scale, unique operating model, and continued focus on innovation will enable our continued growth."
