The MicroCIM program is managed by the Manufacturing Technology Branch at NOSC under sponsorship of the Director, Navy MANTECH Program, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition. Funding is provided from the Navy Industrial Preparedness budget which has the purpose of assisting American industry to be economically competitive with foreign suppliers and therefore sufficiently capable of meeting the needs of the United States Navy during any emergent situation. The intent is to develop new or improved processes, methods, techniques, or equipment to enhance industrial base capability. While this has focused on cost benefits, quality is also seen as an important value. MicroCIM is an outgrowth of the Integrated Facility for Automated Hybrid Microcircuit manufacturing IFAHMM. The purpose of IFAHMM was to develop a test facility to evaluate state-of-the- art technology for the manufacture of hybrid microcircuits. This technology could be used to enhance production capability and, as a result, produce parts at a lower cost to the DoD.
