CONCORD, Mass., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Afghanistan's military is receiving DSP 9000 radio encryption from Technical Communications Corporation (TCC) for its radio systems.
The company's DSP 9000 Handset and DSP 9000 Implant Board were ordered by Datron World Communications Inc., which is supplying its radios to Afghanistan.
The contract from Datron is worth about $870,000. Deliveries will take place next year.
