Exiger, the SaaS company revolutionizing the way corporations, government agencies and banks manage supply chains, today announced that it has been named the strategic technology partner for the U.S. Partnership for Assured Electronics (USPAE), a non-profit organization that helps ensure the U.S. government has access to resilient and trusted electronics supply chains. The partnership will focus on using the latest technology and expertise to map, monitor, and secure electronics supply chains.
"We're thrilled to partner with USPAE to empower their mission to facilitate innovation and collaboration across industry and government, while upholding the highest standards in advanced electronics quality and security," said Trevor Stansbury, Exiger's President of Supply Chain Transformation. "We share their mission to secure U.S. and allied supply chains for critical electronic components and guard against sabotage, attacks and undue influence from adversarial actors."
Under the new partnership, USPAE will vet prospective member applicants to ensure they are qualified suppliers through 1Exiger, Exiger's end-to-end, single sign-on supply chain resilience platform. USPAE will use Exiger's award-winning AI technology to illuminate risk categories, including FOCI, that imperil electronics supply chains. USPAE and Exiger will also produce joint research that raises industry challenges, like scaling and expanding capacity for U.S. manufacturers supporting national defense, for policy makers, industry, and government acquisition professionals.
"We're excited to pair Exiger's deep data-driven industry knowledge with the first-hand experience of USPAE and its members to uncover new insights that can help strengthen domestic microelectronic supply chains.," said Nathan Edwards, USPAE's executive director. "USPAE members will benefit from greater access to the Exiger platform that will help identify and mitigate supply chain risks, providing a greater competitive advantage."
USPAE helps ensure the U.S. Federal Government has access to resilient and trusted electronics supply chains. Members of the nonprofit are organized in the U.S. or its allied countries, and lead the field in researching innovative technologies, and designing, prototyping and producing advanced electronics.
