Carl H. Guild Jr., President and CEO of Technical Communications Corporation, commented, “As stated in our previous quarter’s earnings report, the COVID-19 pandemic had delayed several projects that are in the pipeline, and those delays continue with some limited progress toward the resumption of the procurement process. At this point, the inability to conduct in-person meetings and demonstrations is slowing progress. We do see that certain countries are beginning to open up, and TCC is preparing to increase its level of business development pursuit as soon as it is allowed and safe.

TCC is currently producing DSP 9000 and HSE 6000 radio security equipment for a foreign military sales contract that was received in May, 2020. It is expected that most of that equipment will be delivered by the end of September 2020. This contract is the second annual tranche in a multi-year procurement.”
