TRIAD Ends 2020 with Record Results

January 14, 2021

Strong second-half caps off an exceptional year.


Triad is pleased to announce that it continued to outperform revenue projections in the second half of 2020. The year's record-high revenue and orders were driven by the company's rapidly growing reputation as a premier supplier of feature-rich, ultra-efficient radios, RF/microwave bi-directional amplifiers, custom multi-functional amplifier systems, CubeSat frequency converters and amplifiers and wideband amplification for EW and counter UAS systems. Triad delivered some of the highest data-rates and longest-range ISR wireless links available for Unmanned Land, Sea, and Air Systems this year.


Triad achieved several financial and operational goals in 2020 and positioned itself for future growth with the introduction of its new line of amplified radios, investment in operations, and the addition of key team members.
