Defense Electronics Consortium

USPAE was awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to establish and manage the new Defense Electronics Consortium (DEC), which will work to bolster the security and resiliency of the defense electronics supply chain. The DEC provides a vehicle for DoD to work with trusted partners in industry and academia, including small- and medium-sized innovators that don’t typically do business with the DoD. Members of USPAE that meet the DEC requirements are entitled to become consortium members at no additional cost.
