“We performed well this quarter, achieving record sales and earnings per share.

The combination of BlueView's scanning sonar along with Optech's light detection and ranging, or LIDAR, systems allow Teledyne to generate detailed three dimensional images ranging from space-based applications to viewing structures on the ocean floor. Finally, we remain excited about the pending acquisition of LeCroy Corporation. LeCroy will add a leader in electronic test and measurement solutions to our analytical instrumentation businesses. In addition, LeCroy provides market access and design capabilities to leverage our unique technology in analog and mixed signal design devices developed at Teledyne Scientific Company, our R&D laboratories."
