Microelectronics support nearly all Department of Defense (DoD) activities, enabling capabilities such as the global positioning system, radar, command and control, and communications. Ensuring secure access to leading-edge microelectronics, however, is a challenge. The changing global semiconductor industry and the sophistication of U.S. adversaries, who might target military electronic components, suggest the need for an updated microelectronics security framework.
The goal of the NOW program is to develop a mobile medical countermeasure
(MCM) manufacturing platform for use in stabilization and humanitarian
operations to produce, formulate, and package hundreds of doses of nucleic
acid therapeutics (DNA and/or RNA) in less than 24 hours. The developed
platform should be a resilient, mobile, readily accessible nucleic acid MCM
manufacturing capability that enables immediate threat response anywhere the
military operates with minimal user intervention.
