Nautilus Defense, a global leader in advanced textile-integrated systems, has made a significant breakthrough in electronic textiles. The company announced the successful demonstration of the world’s first direct die attach of chiplets to embroidered conductive yarns at a 180µm pitch, a spacing as thin as a single hair. This technological achievement is a key step towards scalable manufacturing of advanced sensor systems that resemble everyday fabrics.

“Textiles are one of the most pervasive and impactful technologies in human history,” said Jim Owens, CEO of Nautilus Defense. “With support from IARPA and collaborations with private industry and academia, Nautilus is pushing the boundaries of textile-integrated sensor systems. We are proud to lead in the rapidly evolving advanced textile industry. Our technological advancements will bolster national security, create new economic opportunities, and accelerate strategic research across various industries.”

Participating in IARPA’s Smart Electrically Powered and Networked Textile Systems (SMART ePANTS) initiative, Nautilus is developing innovative textile-electronics integration technologies. These advancements will support the development and domestic production of new products for national defense, medical, aerospace, and other applications.

“Nautilus Defense’s latest technology, developed here in Rhode Island, highlights the state’s leadership in manufacturing and textiles,” said U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. “I commend the Nautilus team for their pioneering work to enhance our nation’s defense capabilities and for contributing to the growth of our local textile industry.”
