56 The PCB Design Magazine • September 2014 Mil/Aero007 News Highlights Mass Design Earns DLA MIL PRF 55110 Certification Mass Design Inc. has been awarded the Defense logistics Agency (DlA) MIl PrF 55110 Certifica- tion, establishing this u.S.-based company as a key manufacturer of rigid, flexible, and rigid/flex PCBs for the u.S. Department of Defense. IPC Responds to DoD on Flex Hybrid & Packaging Tech In an effort to accelerate development and adop- tion of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies for making new, globally competitive products with commercial and defense applications, the De- partment of Defense (DoD) issued a request for Information (rFI) on future advanced manufactur- ing centers called Institutes for Manufacturing In- novation, or IMIs. FTG's Aerospace Segments Show Dramatic Q2 Improvements "FTG's momentum has continued through the first half of 2014 with strong results across the com- pany, particularly at our two new aerospace facili- ties in Tianjin and Chatsworth where we continued to see progress on qualification activities, strong orders, and increased shipments," stated Brad Bourne, president and CeO. IPC PERM Council Addresses Lead-free Concerns The IPC Pb-free electronics risk Management Council is currently meeting in Toronto, to discuss lead-free conversion issues related to the safety, performance, and reliability of electronics in the aerospace, defense, medical, and other high-per- formance markets. The Council develops and coor- dinates risk management approaches for the tran- sition to lead-free electronics. ACI Names Circuit Solutions Mid-Atlantic Region Rep Bryan ricke, director of sales and business devel- opment, stated, "We are excited to partner with Circuit Solutions llC, led by the team of John vaughan and Jesse vaughan, to promote our broad and unique product offering geared to the rF com- munity. Their outstanding reputation in the elec- tronics industry coupled with a smart, solutions- driven and vertically integrated business model is a win-win strategy for all parties." Dragon Circuits Achieves MIL-P-50884E Recertification The recertification will allow Dragon to continue the manufacture of PCBs with adhesive/adhesive- less base for critical military-based applications. Multilayer Completes MIL-PRF-55110 Recertification Multilayer Technology is pleased to announce the completion of an additional successful recertifica- tion. This current recertification is in addition to the recent Aerospace Supplier (AS9100C) re-cer- tification. Former Astronaut Helps Murrietta Celebrate Award When Murrietta Circuits received their Five Star Supplier award from raytheon in Massachusetts last June, former astronaut and now vice president of Mission Assurance, Quality, and raytheon's Six Sigma for Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), rob- ert Curbeam, handed them the award. Canadian Circuits Nets Controlled Goods Certification Praveen Arya, president and co-owner of Canadian Circuits, Inc. announced that his company has re- ceived its Canadian Controlled Goods Certification. This, along with their ITAr registration, makes the company a viable PCB source for all military and aerospace companies requiring these certifications. DARPA Details Next-Gen GPS Technologies Several new programs are exploring innovative technologies and approaches that could even- tually provide reliable, highly-accurate position- ing, navigation, and timing capabilities when GPS capabilities are degraded or unavailable. Penny-sized inertial sensors, pulsed lasers, and tracked lightning strikes are among the novel approaches to provide location-based insights in GPS-denied areas. 56 The PCB Design Magazine • September 2014
