This area is very much under development.  Eventually there will be a reasonably complete history of the company, photo galleries, and various other entries

"The Voice of TMC" voice_of_tmc_cover.jpg (3667351 bytes) The Voice of TMC was the company's internal newspaper/magazine.  It appears to have been published monthly, but one 3 issues have come my way.  If you have any of these magazines, please let me know!

Photo Galleries ray_dep_portrait2.jpg (338044 bytes) This link points to a growing set of photo galleries:  people, projects, places.   I could really use help identifying some of these places and things!
Products that Weren't underwater_generator.jpg (1161643 bytes) This link takes you a gallery of "products" that TMC attempted to develop as its Navy radio business began to drop away.  These included some fairly bizarre ideas, like a 1MW underwater nuclear power generator, a line of commercial/ham radio equipment, Joe Namath's football helmet, and others.
