Mission
The world has changed. Modern weapon systems must be smart, capable and adaptable. Microelectronic technologies make that possible. The Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) was founded because technological superiority is the essential underpinning of U.S. military strategy and national security. DMEA was established and continuously evolved by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) to jointly act as the DOD Center for microelectronics technology, acquisition, transformation, and support. DMEA is composed of highly specialized engineering facilities and microelectronic engineers that work in close partnership with the major defense contractors and the semiconductor industry to provide support for fielded systems across all U.S. military organizations.
