Highlight of Business Operations:

The ACS business unit is focused on specialized high performance embedded computing solutions in defense electronics and commercial markets. In the fiscal years ended June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008, ACS accounted for 95%, 97% and 99%, respectively, of our total net revenues. ACSs open system architecture computing solutions span the full range of embedded computing technologies from board level products, including single board computers and digital signal processors, to fully integrated subsystems. Our products utilize leading-edge processor technologies architected to address data-intensive applications that include signal, sensor, and image processing within environmentally constrained military and commercial applications. Customized design and integration services extend our capabilities to tailor solutions to meet the specialized requirements of military and commercial applications.

In the fiscal years ended June 30, 2010, 2009 and 2008, MFS accounted for 5%, 3% and 1%, respectively, of our total net revenues. MFS is part of our long-term strategy to expand our software and services presence and pursue growth in complementary markets, particularly in the ISR markets. MFS offers a wide range of engineering architecture and design services that enable clients to deploy leading edge computational capabilities for ISR systems on an accelerated time cycle. Over the past year, the Pentagon has continued its commitment to rapidly field advanced ISR capabilities to support deployed U.S. forces. These ISR assets are equipped with modern sensors that require advanced computing solutions to process, exploit and disseminate the information to users in a timely manner.

To support our global customer base, we maintain a significant presence throughout the United States, with supporting offices in Europe and Japan, staffed with local applications engineers, sales and customer support staff. In fiscal 2010, Raytheon Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation accounted for 20% and 17% of our total net revenues, respectively. In fiscal 2009, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Argon ST, Inc. and Raytheon Company accounted for 14%, 13%, 13% and 11% of our total net revenues, respectively. In fiscal 2008, Argon ST, Inc. and Northrop Grumman Corporation each accounted for 13% of our total net revenues. Although we have a high concentration of revenue with several customers, we work with many divisions within each of our significant customers, and we work on numerous long-term programs supported by those customers. In fiscal 2010, the Aegis program accounted for 15% of our total net revenues. In fiscal 2009 and 2008, no single program accounted for more than 10% of total net revenues.

International revenues represented approximately 10%, 7%, and 10% of our total net revenues during fiscal years 2010, 2009, and 2008, respectively. International revenue is designated based on the country in which our legal subsidiary generating the revenue is domiciled (see Note J to the consolidated financial statements).
