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 Nucleic acids On-demand Worldwide (NOW) program aims to develop a mobile medical countermeasure (MCM) manufacturing platform for use in stabilization and humanitarian operations to rapidly produce, formulate, and package hundreds of doses of nucleic acid therapeutics (DNA and/or RNA).

Our deployed service members are exposed to adversary activity and numerous naturally occurring or engineered threats including chemicals, viruses, and bacteria. To protect them, BTO is developing technologies that can rapidly detect and characterize these threats. In addition, BTO is developing novel biological approaches to sense and report adversary activities on land and at sea.

Service members need constant supplies of clean water, food, medicines, and materials to complete their missions. BTO is enabling the migration of biotechnology from the lab into the field, creating new opportunities to harden operations against disruption by increasing operational resilience and logistic security.
