Global manufacturer of advanced textile-integrated systems Nautilus Defence has demonstrated a significant advancement in the field of electronic textiles. At a pitch of 180 m, or as thin as a single hair, Nautilus claimed to have achieved the first direct die attachment of chiplets to conductive embroidered yarns. This technical accomplishment is a big step towards the scalable manufacturing of state-of-the-art sensor systems that feel and look like real garments.

Moreover, textiles are among the most important, ubiquitous, and subtle technology developed in human history. According to Jim Owens, CEO of Nautilus Defence, “Nautilus is pushing the boundaries of textile-integrated sensor systems with assistance from IARPA and partnerships with the commercial sector and academia.” “We’re proud to have been among the first in the rapidly evolving sophisticated textile industry. Nautilus is developing technological advancements that will accelerate significant research initiatives across numerous industries, enhance national security, and spur regional economic growth.

With its participation in IARPA’s Smart Electrically Powered and Networked Textile Systems (SMART ePANTS) initiative, Nautilus is developing innovative textile-electronics integration technologies. These technologies will make it possible to create and produce innovative goods domestically for a range of uses, including the aerospace, medical, national defence, and other industries. Prominent members of academia and business, including TRX Systems, GE Aerospace, Anthro Energy, and Centeye Anachne Laboratories, have worked with Nautilus on the SMART ePANTS initiative.
