IPC Working to Inform U.S. Defense Electronics Report


Reading time ( words)

Pursuant to Section 845 of the Fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is required to provide an assessment of the defense electronics industrial base to Congress by January 31, 2019. IPC has been the primary champion for this study, which reflects the need for a comprehensive evaluation of the defense electronics supply chain and its future needs. 

Mid October, IPC cohosted a day-long discussion of the issue with DoD, WHMA and ECIA, focusing on five segments of the industry: PCB, EMS, cable/wire harness, connectors, and passive components. And in the coming weeks, we will be submitting more information and recommendations to the DoD.
