LOS ANGELES, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII) announced winners in two awards programs at the recent Smart Manufacturing Experience event in Pittsburgh. The award programs recognized the guidance of 25 industry leaders who are credited with the origin and creation of smart manufacturing, as well as identifying 16 individuals and project teams that have provided significant advancement in technologies transforming industrial processes.
"From our origins at a cyber-infrastructure workshop in 2006 to today, smart manufacturing has evolved to empower manufacturers with high degrees of continuous improvement in quality, throughput, cost reduction and safety for the stakeholders in their organizations," said John Dyck, Chief Executive Officer of CESMII. "These two award programs, instituted on the 15th anniversary of smart manufacturing and dedicated to the advancement of digital transformation, identify the titans of this important technology – past, present and future."
Dyck said as part of the presentation of the two award programs, the organization visually chronicled the inception and rise of smart manufacturing (SM) as a technology focus, with a timeline depicting when and how its innovators contributed to its growth. He said many of these originating architects of SM were present in Pittsburgh to participate in the program, receiving a crystal award plaque at the event to commemorate their role in SM's historic rise.

SRHEC Parts Library Database Certified to Operate in the Cloud as Part of TSS-DTE
ORO VALLEY, Ariz., Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- (Oct. 05, 2021) – Nimbis Services, Inc. (Nimbis), today announced that the Strategic Radiation Hardened Electronics Council (SRHEC) Parts Library database has been granted the authority to operate on its cloud platform, the Trusted Silicon Stratus Distributed Transition Environment (TSS-DTE). The TSS-DTE is a secure, multi-tenancy platform that enables users to collaborate, innovate and educate in a secure community workspace. The Authority to Operate certification, a formal declaration accepting the risk to operations, was granted by the Air Force Research Laboratory in Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The TSS-DTE is hosting the database by Nimbis in partnership with NSWC Crane.
The SRHEC Parts Library database is designed to manage and protect Critical Program Information (CPI) and provide a DoD-wide Qualified Parts List (QPL) in a highly secure parts management system. The database streamlines the part selection process and reduces cost by providing users from multi-agencies and DoD sites a common parts database for use in microelectronics design.
The TSS-DTE provides a trusted microelectronics Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) ecosystem that provisions a design-to-release, and manufacturing-to-operational-lifecycle, management cloud computing infrastructure and enterprise architecture. The TSS-DTE manages secure data repositories for tools, IP, ITAR and non-ITAR sensitive data, and provenance information within a DoD ATO-certified cloud domain for DoD operational users. Because the TSS-DTE is also technology agnostic, it can be applied to a multitude of applications within the commercial and academic space, including smart manufacturing, supply chain and database management, and workforce development.
The certification of database to operate on the TSS-DTE was praised by both NSWC Crane and Nimbis.
"Receiving the AFRL ATO certification is a significant achievement for the SRHEC Parts Library and the first step in achieving a classified cloud certification," said Jeffrey Johann, SRHEC Technical Execution Lead, NSWC Crane. "Our goal is to establish a Strategic Radiation Hardened microelectronics library to facilitate government re-use of intellectual property throughout DoD."
Robert Graybill, Co-Founder and CEO of Nimbis Services, Inc., agreed saying, "The AFRL ATO certification is a major milestone for the SRHEC Parts Library database on its path to obtaining a DoD-wide FedRAMP ATO on the TSS-DTE," he said, "and an exciting time at Nimbis as we grow our strategic partnerships with DoD and expand our adeptness in the microelectronics design space."
The TSS-DTE was developed based on the Joint Federated Assurance Center (JFAC) guidelines for a trusted and secure cloud ecosystem. Nimbis is currently pursuing an Impact Level 4 (IL-4) and higher security-level accreditation for the TSS-DTE in support of a classified mission cloud system. Read More
On Sept. 30, the DOD opened a parts library to serve the department and other agencies with requirements for radiation hardened parts, including NASA and the Department of Energy. The cloud-based library is hosted by Nimbis Services in Oro Valley, Arizona. Known as the Trusted Silicon Stratus Distributed Transition Environment, the authority to operate this library was issued by the Strategic Radiation Hardened Electronics Council; the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio; and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division in Indiana.
