The Microelectronics Commons program is a first of its kind approach aimed at decreasing our dependency on other nations for microelectronics. The Department of Defense is looking to cast a wide net on the technology industry and Defense Industrial Base (DIB) to innovate and collaborate to successfully deliver on a project of this scale.
Microelectronics Commons Prototype Giving Much Needed Boost to American Microelectronics Industrial Baselucianstxl2023-01-24T11:59:26-08:00
The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)) has proposed a prototype project to close the gap between microelectronics innovation and market adoption. The prototype project- Microelectronics Commons - will enable lab-to-fab prototyping– that is, evolve microelectronics laboratory prototyping to fabrication prototyping – in domestic facilities.
In 2022, we welcomed 300 new member organizations across 64 technology focus areas, 75% representing Small, Non-Traditional organizations. This year, our members top technology areas included 5G, Microelectronics, Hypersonics, and Space Awareness.
The Microelectronics Commons Industry Days was a two-day event designed to provide deep dives into the six technology areas vital to the Microelectronics Commons program: Secure Edge/IoT Computing, 5G/6G Technology, Artificial Intelligence Hardware, Quantum Technology, Electromagnetic Warfare, and Commercial Leap-Ahead Technologies.
The DoD Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)) Trusted and Assured Microelectronics (T&AM) Program is initiating the Stimulating Transition for Advanced Microelectronics Packaging (STAMP) project to quickly field the microelectronic advancements the State-of-the-art Heterogeneous Integrated Packaging (SHIP) prototyping project has developed.

The Department of Defense (DoD) is releasing its Growing Additive Manufacturing Maturity for Airbreathing Hypersonics (GAMMA-H) prototype opportunity in its efforts to expand current manufacturing processes to intricate hypersonic weapons parts.
“Build it and they will come.” The phrase has been used in business for decades—a way of saying, ‘start that company and it will succeed.’ And while baseball fans flocked to the Field of Dreams in the iconic movie from 1989, anyone who has started a business knows, it takes more than just a great idea. It takes that plus dedication, persistence and a solid strategy. Sometimes it also takes incentives, big monetary incentives.
From cars to phones to computers, there aren’t many things these days that don’t use microelectronics, and the United States is in dire need them. Currently, over 85% of microelectronics used in the United States are fabricated outside the U.S. The Department of Defense recognizes the risk of possible security ►
The U.S. Department of Defense, through the NSTXL consortium-based S2MARTS OTA, has awarded Intel an agreement to provide commercial foundry services in the first phase of its multi-phase Rapid Assured Microelectronics Prototypes - Commercial (RAMP-C) program.
