Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) has received a contract
valued at approximately $870,000 for its military-grade DSP 9000 radio
encryption for use by the Afghanistan military. The contract is from Datron
World Communications, Inc., a global supplier of radio communications
equipment. As part of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) relationship,
TCC will provide its DSP 9000 Handset and DSP 9000 Implant Board. The DSP 9000
Implant Board will be embedded in Datron radios. TCC expects to complete
delivery of the order during the company’s 2014 fiscal year. TCC began
deploying the DSP 9000 for use in Afghanistan more than five years ago.

Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and CEO at Technical Communications Corporation,
said, “Being selected once again by our customer to secure the radio
communications network in Afghanistan using our DSP 9000 confirms our
solution’s operational performance, customization capability, and flexibility
to support various applications.”

The DSP 9000 universal secure radio encryption family operates with most radio
makes and models, and all frequency bands, as well as seamlessly overlays on
existing voice networks for cost effective end-to-end secure communications.
It also has the unique capability to securely connect allied forces across
theaters on a global scale regardless of their communications equipment. With
the DSP 9000, U.S. and NATO, and Afghan forces can communicate securely during
tactical operations. The DSP 9000 has proven in-use performance with
government agencies and armed forces around the world, including major
deployments in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia.

vehicle applications.
