Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) had second quarter 2015 net sales of $1,416 million compared to $1,505 million in the second quarter 2014. The change in net sales was primarily due to lower sales on international tactical radar systems programs.

SAS recorded $186 million of operating income in the second quarter 2015 compared to $202 million in the second quarter 2014. The change in operating income was primarily due to lower volume in the second quarter 2015 combined with higher net program efficiencies in the second quarter 2014.
