Abstract:

The ability to safeguard critical technology from unwanted exploitation remains of national importance in the face of ever increasingly sophisticated threats. Tanner Research has developed and demonstrated elegant penalty phase anti-tamper solutions for use against the most ardent and determined purveyors seeking to breach national security. Exploitation attempts will occur. This effort seeks to develop an overarching anti-tamper system for orchestrating appropriate levels of penalty in response to very specific attempts and/or generic-types of exploitation events that might be intentional; or, caused inadvertently through routine maintenance. Almost all technology found on the MCTL can be protected from exploitation by destroying it during an unwanted event. However, friends and allies seeking to use our equipment through FMS purchase must be able to perform maintenance on individual pieces. Friends and allies will make benign, maybe even aggressive attempts at cursory examination of U.S. technology without intentions of materially impairing U.S. interests. Tanner Research proposes to demonstrate in Phase I a two-part methodology for: fusing data inputs from multiple anti-tamper sensors and techniques; and, developing a multi-level response capability commensurate with a level-of-threat determination.
