The flexible electronics industry has adopted flexible hybrid electronic (FHE) systems as a go to market strategy. High volume products are emerging for body worn bio patches, conformal structural appliques and smart labels. These products were principally developed for volume consumer and industrial market solutions but are directly applicable to advanced defense systems. This article highlights the state of the art for bio patch, conformal and smart FHE products and identifies their dual use capability for defense systems. A discussion of the manufacturing base for FHE products is presented and current experimental prototype results and performance are shared.
