Abstract
The proposed program is intended to develop a practical low cost solution to reliably ensure that it is possible to deny reverse analysis of the critical RF frequencies and processor electronics code and algorithms that are increasingly employed by the integrated electronics within the Fuze assemblies. What is proposed is a unique low cost solution that is normally passive i.e. does not consume any energy under normal conditions. As detailed below, the solution is rugged to excessive loads, low cost to manufacture, and should be completely flexible in application to many military Fuze products.
