Join us on Sept. 21st for an information session to learn more about he Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA), located in McClellan, CA, which is a Federal Research & Development (R&D) laboratory facility established in March 1997 by the Deputy Secretary of Defense as the Department of Defense (DoD) Center for microelectronics technology, acquisition, transformation, and support. DMEA is the DoD’s leading authority on microelectronics and executes its mission to provide vital parts and services in innovative ways to meet the needs of the DoD and enable the Warfighter.*
DMEA participates in the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs which are highly competitive and encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. DMEA develops SBIR and STTR topics that are prioritized with preference to topics that lead to manufacturing opportunities at DMEA and commercialization. Through an awards-based program, the SBIR and STTR programs enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization.
*Warfighter – Operation Warfighter (OWF) is a Department of Defense internship program that matches qualified wounded, ill, and injured service members with non-funded federal internships in order for them to gain valuable work experience during their recovery and rehabilitation.
