Nimbis Services will deliver a first-of-its-kind multi-tenancy, inter-organizational, collaborative, trusted microelectronics Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) ecosystem that provisions a Design-To-Release-Manufacturing-to-operational-to-Life-Cycle-Management (LCM) cloud computing infrastructure and enterprise architecture. Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software and Integrated Circuit (IC) data repositories are implemented as a private community cloud computing WorkFlow-as-a-Service (WFaaS) for DoD R&D teams, contractors, and government research laboratories. 


The overall objectives of the project are:

  1. To develop, integrate, beta test, and deliver a TRL 8 (ASIC, FPGA, & SoC) design-to-release manufacturing-to-operational-to- LCM SCRM solution;
  2. To deliver a DIACAP-compliant cloud solution that provides a secure multi-tenancy, inter-organizational, collaborative environment for the Air Force and the rest of the DoD communities;
  3. To function as a secure data repository for trusted IC data, manufacturing, test data, supply, field defects, fatigue analysis, inventory, deployment, re-fit and upgrade, and data provenance in the DoD supply chain and acquisition cycle; and
  4. To address the disparate, effectively independent nature of existing DoD IC design infrastructure that prohibits leveraging economies of scale and limits collaboration between DoD/contractor teams throughout the LCM of a weapons platform and associated subsystems.

The TSS-SCRM technology is based on prior work funded by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and demonstrated at the GOMACTech 2012 conference and in the DARPA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)-funded Application Domain Portal Hosting Service project,” says Robert Graybill, Nimbis Services’ President and CEO.  The technology’s TSS SCRM capability represents a key milestone in the journey of enabling virtual modeling and simulation design ecosystems for military systems.  Additional extensions include smart manufacturing neutral cloud hosting services for large manufacturers and their supply chains.
