Your sensors were temporarily disabled, Dan. (grin)

Indeed, Jeff. How the hell did I miss that?

The camera is $120M. Packaging, Shipping and Handling is $180M.

What's crazy is that they have a guaranteed $250M/yr contract with NGA for four years. Must be nice!

So how much of that is the cost of the camera, and how much of that is the price of shipping it?

My next door neighbor just ordered a $300M camera.
