We maintained strong sales revenue while simultaneously focusing on new product development for emerging markets, such as our DroneRAD product line. The increase in cost of goods can be attributed to the new product development, and new sales and marketing campaigns for these products raised our GS&A costs, but we are pleased with the progress.
