Abstract
"Tamper resistant coatings and encapsulation methods are currently employed to deter any attempt at stealing defense electronics technology. However, these coatings are difficult to apply and add weight to the final assembly. Cornerstone Research Groupproposes to develop and apply novel polymer materials for manufacturing improved tamper-resistant electronic circuit boards. The Secure Polymeric Circuit Board System is a system designed to improve performance and weight of the final assembly whilemaintaining security. Also, this system will be easy to manufacture in comparison with current techniques. The system is a three-part design involving the development of a new substrate, interconnection layer, and hard encapsulation covering. Each one ofthese developments has applications in current circuit board manufacturing methods as a complete system or as an individual component. New circuit board materials and manufacturing techniques to integrate tamper resistance, improve performance and increasereliability are essential to the next generation of Air Force communications and electronic equipment. This system will be used to increase the flexibility and security of circuit boards used in Air Force equipment. The success of this technology in theAir Force could be used as leverage for applications in other military and aerospace platforms. This technology could also be used in the commercial electronics field to ensure security an
