This report covers the period June 1, 2020 through May 31, 2021. As we near the end of FY21, which is June 30, CEC’s overall performance continues to slowly recover from COVID-induced challenges.
I am pleased to announce that this month’s report now includes numbers for CEC’s newest research center: Center of Trusted, Accelerated, and Secure Computing and Communication (C-TASC).
