DARPA's Microsystem Technology Office (MTO) is developing a portfolio of technology-driven protections to increase microelectronics security and broaden access to the most advanced microelectronics products. To accomplish these goals, MTO programs aim to obscure the design of sensitive devices to make reverse engineering difficult and to protect intellectual property, verify the function and origin of microelectronic devices, and better manage the supply chain.
Since its inception in 1992, DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) has helped create and prevent strategic surprise through investments in compact microelectronic components such as microprocessors, Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and photonic devices. MTO’s revolutionary work applying advanced capabilities in areas such as wide-band gap materials, phased array radars, high-energy lasers and infrared imaging have helped the United States establish and maintain technological superiority for more than two decades.

In this episode DARPA’s podcast, MTO program manager Dan Green discusses the Agency’s work to develop semiconductor materials, among them gallium arsenide and now gallium nitride, that open pathways to both military and civilian technology in categories spanning from electronic warfare to radar to communications.

With roots extending to the DARPA-supported Transit program—a Navy submarine-geopositioning system originating in the early years of the Space Age at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory—what became today’s world-changing GPS technology began to take modern form in 1973. That is when the Department of Defense called for the creation of a joint program office to develop the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System.
