Integrated circuits (ICs) are a fundamental and foundational element of electronics in components and systems. For the U.S. Army, ICs are critical in weapon systems, core business systems, key communications systems, and artificial intelligence computational systems. Once a global leader, the United States finds itself in a position of decreasing control and influence in the leading-edge IC markets, a critical segment for enabling U.S. dominance.
