INDIANAPOLIS -

A new four-way partnership aims to boost the state's national position in the field of trusted microelectronics. The Indiana Innovation Institute, Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indiana University and Purdue University have inked a cooperative research and development agreement that officials say will drive research, talent and economic development. The collaboration will work to develop microelectronics that are resistant to counterfeiting and immune to multiple types of attacks.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Indiana Innovation Institute Chief Executive Officer General Gene Renuart said the partners each come with their own strengths. He says using Purdue's expertise in engineering and IU's computing prowess "takes advantage of the best that our state research institutions may have." Renuart says Crane helps from a practical application standpoint. The University of Notre Dame is a subcontractor in the partnership, which Renuart believes could open the door for more collaboration in the future. He adds "we'll continue to have discussion with Indiana State (University), for example, with IUPUI in some of their areas of expertise to look to see how we fold these together for future opportunities."

In April, the Indianapolis-based institute announced it was changing names from the Applied Research Institute and that it had signed its first contract -- a $2.3 million collaboration with Purdue on trusted microelectronics. The new agreement is designed to formalize relationships the partners say will build a pipeline and "establishes a critical mass of regional partners dedicated to bringing the next generation of new systems and products to the Department of Defense."

The three areas of focus include:

  • Inherently secure and adaptable hardware and software
  • Ultra-reliable hardware under extreme conditions
  • Counterfeit prevention and detection
