CONCORD, Mass., Oct. 19, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technical Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:TCCO), an international communications security and encryption technology company, has received an order valued at approximately $3.7 million for further expansion of its DSP 9000 radio encryptor deployments in Afghanistan. This order includes shipments of DSP 9000 radio encryptors for the local forces in Afghanistan. These new orders were received from Datron World Communications, Inc., a global supplier of HF/VHF tactical communications equipment. This order results from the continuing effort by the Afghan National forces to strengthen their internal security and provide effective and secure communications. Deliveries for this order are planned to be completed in fiscal 2011.

During the past year, TCC has seen a significant increase in shipments to the region, which is driven by the need for secure (encrypted) tactical radio communications between NATO and local security forces. TCC believes this new deployment will significantly increase the ability of the Afghan, NATO and U.S. forces to communicate securely over their HF radios.

The TCC DSP 9000 family of radio encryptors for HF, VHF, and UHF radios are rugged, field grade products with a proven track record of over 15 years of in-use performance with many government agencies and armed forces around the world. The DSP 9000 comes in several models, configurable for airborne, naval, man-pack, land vehicle and police applications.
