Ed Sheehan, president and CEO of Concurrent Technologies Corp., said he forecasts there would be “some growth“ in fiscal 2018 as defense contractors work to “make a positive impact.“

He added the Trump administration’s plans to increase the Department of Defense budget could have advantages for local contractors.

Sheehan said he expects the White House to pass a complete budget before the Oct. 1 deadline as lawmakers aim to draft the spending plan for FY 2018 in May, according to the report.
