Multi-Functional, Light-Cured, Anti-Tamper Coating
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
The sophisticated technology of U.S. military weapons systems provides battlefield advantages that can save lives and reduce equipment loss. Electronics subsystems are critical components of modern weapons systems and are extensively employed throughout the DoD. It is therefore critical to protect these technologies and avoid their exploitation in such a way that may reduce a weapon system's effectiveness. In this Phase II SBIR program, Infoscitex Corporation (IST) proposes the continued development of an anti-tamper (AT) solution that promises to bridge capability gaps indicative of existing AT solutions. The light-curable anti-tamper coating (LCATC) demonstrated in Phase I will be refined to ensure protection against a range of reverse engineering techniques. An application process scalable to meet foreseeable demands from the DoD will be developed. The Phase II program will culminate with a round of reverse engineering challenges, which will demonstrate the efficacy and superiority of IST's LCATC.
