On a geographic basis, the increase in revenues in Asia-Pacific was mainly due to increased sales of a project to upgrade tanks for a customer in this region. The strong growth of revenues in Latin America was mainly due to increased sales of HLS and EW systems as well as unmanned airborne systems in this region.
