Abstract
Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) proposes to design a novel multiple tamper detection and active anti-tamper (AT) scheme for use in new and existing weapon systems. A thorough understanding of tamper technologies in the industrial base is essential to developing new multi-mode detection devices. CRG will take an industrial base analysis approach to develop the data on tamper technologies in the industrial base. CRG will apply the information to design a multi-mode tamper detection tool capable of detecting and counting intrusion events and then zeroing or destroying critical weapon system components. The tamper detection tool can be embedded in a hard coat or attached directly to a subsystem board or multi-chip module (MCM). The CRG design will detect x-ray, ultrasonic, mechanical, SEM, chemical, and thermal attacks. CRG will determine the performance criteria of the detector, analyzing inputs/outputs, order of attacks, false negatives and false positives. Once a tamper event is detected, the device sends a signal to zero the MCM. CRG will leverage existing relationships with weapon system manufacturers to support the development of the technology and as an outlet for possible implementation and commercialization.
