DOD awards $46.2M to revitalize US Defense Industrial Base On-Shoring of Advanced Packaging and Assembly

WASHINGTON, USA – The Department of Defense on Thursday announced an award of $46.2 million to GreenSource Fabrication LLC (GreenSource) via the Defense Production Act Investment (DPAI) Program. The award will enhance existing production capabilities at a manufacturing facility of state-of-the-art integrated circuits (IC) substrate, high-density interconnect (HDI) and ultra-high-density interconnect (UHDI), and advanced packaging.

“Re-shoring advanced packaging and assembly are essential to increase semiconductor supply chain security,” said Dr Laura Taylor-Kale, assistant secretary of defense for industrial base policy. “Expanding domestic production capability for printed circuit boards and advanced packaging is necessary to avert a shortfall that would severely impair national defense capability.”

The award will enable GreenSource to scale up engineering, tooling, and manufacturing operations to establish a dedicated facility for IC substrate fabrication for a high-mix, low-volume offering of advanced interconnect solutions. These domestic production capabilities for HDI, UHDI, IC substrates, and advanced packaging are critical enabling technologies for sixth-generation systems and applications, including for radar, electronic warfare, information processing, and communications.

In calendar year 2023, the DPAI Program made 25 awards totaling $781 million. DPAI is overseen by the ASD(IBP)’s Manufacturing Capability Expansion and Investment Program (MCEIP), in the office of the deputy assistant secretary of defense for industrial base resilience.
