STONY BROOK, NYApplied DNA Sciences said it has signed multiple contracts in support of the mandate by the Defense Logistics Agency for use of APDN’s DNA marking and authentication technology.


Electronics companies receive the company's novel DNA and materials and services from APDN for DNA marking during or after manufacture. This will qualify them as SigNature DNA-compliant, the firm says.

The contracts will enable electronics companies to fulfill the DLA mandate, announced Aug. 7 and expanded on Nov. 7. This mandate specifically requires SigNature DNA marking for procurements of items falling within Federal Supply Class 5962, Electronic Microcircuits. The requirement applies only to procurements made by DLA.

Participating defense contractors will enable the military electronics supply chain to move toward compliance with the anti-counterfeiting language in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

A major deadline, which imposes strict requirements for control of counterfeits, is due to be reached very soon, the firm says.

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
