IBM To Enhance The Supply Chain Security Of The DoD

IBM announced a new 33-month work order under its contract with the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) to provide security services designed to enhance the Department of Defense’s (DoD) microelectronics supply chain for critical mission platforms.

As part of the Trusted Foundry Access II program, IBM will continue to establish secured microelectronics manufacturing flows at commercial state-of-the-art fabrication facilities.

In a time when global supply chains have become increasingly fragile and the U.S. is facing diminished secure microelectronics supply, IBM’s work can help DMEA increase domestic capacity of advanced, secured, and trusted semiconductors for key military and national security programs.

The DMEA Trusted Access Program Office (TAPO) has administered the Trusted Foundry Program since 2003 and is responsible for sourcing cost-effective and trusted access to critical microelectronics for the U.S. government. In 2015, this mission was transferred from the National Security Agency to the DoD’s DMEA.

IBM has provided secured microelectronics and supply chain services in support of the Trusted Foundry program for 20 years, helping DMEA to enable the manufacture of U.S.-based advanced microelectronics following stringent federal government security standards.
