Research Institution
The primary objective of this Phase I program will be to demonstrate a high efficiency IC Implanted Energy Extraction and Optimal Management Architecture using multithreat detect capable devices (both tamper and reverse engineering). We aim to show through engineering research, device modeling and hardware prototypes that this approach will enable maximal energy conversion capability while simultaneously enabling broad threat detection capability. The design inaccessibility to any adversary will reduce any risks associated with power interruptions or tampering. Being guided by an MDA prime contractor/end-use integrator of the technology will substantially focus the efforts and improve chances for successful integration of protective techniques/technologies into several key MDA missions that are ongoing. The results will be largely applicable to many forms and types of hardware AT device packaging and weapons platform electronics.
