Research Institution
The objective of the Phase I program is to develop the requisite technologies to build tamper response devices that prevent the reverse engineering of military infrared focal plane array systems by destroying key elements of the IR system upon the detection of a tamper attack. The combination of mechanisms employed by the tamper response device is selectable from a variety of destructive mechanisms and can be tailored to the level of destruction required for the technology to prevent reverse engineering. Depending on the technology being protected, the level of destruction can vary from rendering the device inoperable to completely destroying the device. This flexibility enables the tamper response device to be used in a wide variety of applications including ones requiring no collateral damage and no harmful byproducts.
