CONCORD, Mass. -- February 7, 2014

Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM:TCCO) today announced its
results for the first quarter of its 2014 fiscal year. For the quarter ended
December 28, 2013, the Company reported net income of $184,000 or $0.10 per
share, on revenue of $2,509,000, compared to a net loss of $(310,000), or
$(0.17) per share, on revenue of $1,597,000 for the quarter ended December 29,

Commenting on corporate performance, Carl H. Guild, Jr., President and Chief
Executive Officer of TCC, said, “During the quarter, we shipped the balance of
our large production contract to the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics
Command to upgrade the DSD 72A-SP military bulk encryption system currently in
use by the Government of Egypt. We also received $955,000 in orders for our
DSP 9000 radio encryption system from a U.S. radio manufacturer for deployment
into Afghanistan.”

“Our traditional government products continue to be in demand and sales of
these products accounted for the majority of revenues during the quarter. At
the same time, we continue to ramp up marketing efforts for our new secure
voice and data products, and have had positive market response to date.”

“Revenues for the balance of fiscal 2014 are difficult to predict due to
delays in the award of certain foreign and domestic procurements currently in
process. We nevertheless remain confident that the release of our new data and
voice products will result in improved future revenue and profitability.”

During fiscal 2014 the Company is focusing technical efforts on three
principal areas: development of solutions that meet the needs of original
equipment manufacturers; product enhancements that include expanded features,
planned capability and applications growth; and custom solutions that tailor
our products to meet the unique needs of our customers.
