New manufacturing alliance helping DOD turn 'science fiction' hybrid electronics into reality
The Defense Department is investing $75 million in a new consortium of more than 160 companies, universities, government organizations and others to develop hybrid electronics. "This is an emerging technology that takes advanced flexible materials for circuits, communications, sensors, and power, and combines them with thinned silicon chips to ultimately produce the next generation of electronic products," Defense Secretary Ash Carter said while announcing the partnership with the FlexTech Alliance to create a new manufacturing innovation institute.
