This paper reports on the institute for Defense Analyses IDA efforts in support of Phase-1 of a multi-phased project to determine the extent to which commercial integrated circuits ICs can be successfully used in military applications. Objectives of the Phase-1 study were to assess impediments to, and strategies for, accelerating the use of commercial ICs in military systems. IDAs participation was sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense Economic Security, Industrial Capabilities and Assessments Directorate. The multi-phased project plan was prepared by the Multi-Use Manufacturing Work Panel of the industry Task Force for Affordability. The industry Task Forces Executive Group1 was designated as an industry interface to the Defense Manufacturing Council. The National Center for Advanced Technologies NCAT provided secretariat functions for the industry Task Force. This paper summarizes the results of IDA analysis and provides an overview of the Phase-1 study results including the NCAT industry summary report.
