Abstract
Active anti-tamper systems have the benefit of detecting and responding to a tamper event in real-time. One drawback to this type of system, however, is the constant power requirement. Battery power will eventually become insufficient to power an active system, and replacing the battery requires periodic maintenance Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to develop a self-generating power source that can provide sufficient power to protect critical technology weapons systems. CRG will leverage its materials processing capabilities, photovoltaic expertise, and system integration skills to create an AT power solution using energy conversion techniques. The proposed anti-tamper component will address all three aspects of anti-tamper design: to "deter, detect, and respond" to a tamper event. CRG will leverage their proprietary conformal coating material, multi-mode anti-tamper sensor system, energy harvesting expertise, and system integration skills to create an AT solution using this long-term power technique. The MDA has been given a directive to apply protective measures to critical program information. The proposed self-generating power source will allow MDA to meet this directive by actively protecting critical assets, even during periods of long-term storage.
