AME RECEIVES SUPPLY CHAIN IMPROVEMENT AWARD
The Microcircuit Emulation Team was awarded the “Supply Chain Improvement Award” at last year’s Defense Manufacturers Conference held in December 2017.
This was in recognition of the AME Program’s efforts to re-establish design and manufacturing capability for Military grade 128 kb RAM/ROM microcircuits.
This memory technology rapidly transitioned to production and is expected to support over 100 Military weapon systems.
ABOUT THE AWARD
The award is sponsored by the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP), and the award was established in 1999.
Award recipients are selected based on the following three criteria:
- Manufacturing Technology Achievement – Results of the project are unique, outstanding, and important to the DoD and ultimately the Warfighter.
- Transition / Implementation – Results of the project have been implemented on a specific platform/weapon system and/or at an industrial facility or there is a high degree of assurance that they will be implemented.
- Potential or Realized Benefits. – Benefits resulting from the project are significant to the DoD (may include increased capability, reduced cost, improved performance, reduced cycle time, higher reliability, weight reduction, environmental compliance, etc.)

AFFORDABLY MEETING THE WARFIGHTER’S NEEDS
This year the Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award honored the Defense Logistic Agencies Advanced Microcircuit Emulation (AME) program for outstanding technical accomplishment.
The AME program helped to further the achievement of the vision of the Department of Defense (DoD) Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program.
Mantech’s vision is to “realize a responsive world-class manufacturing capability to affordably meet the Warfighters’ needs throughout the defense system life cycle.”
This was a very fulfilling accomplishment for us in 2017. This manufacturing capability is now available if needed for the manufacturing of your part. If you have any concerns about a part going obsolete, please contact us.
