Research Institution
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a laser-based secure electronic component identification system which specifically addresses the risk of counterfeit parts at all points along the supply chain. The proposed approach non-destructively, covertly, and uniquely identifies each electronic component produced, allowing for retrieval of production time, location, batch/lot number, etc. and high-confidence authentication at any point along the assembly process. This solution requires no consumables and no changes to the design, material or composition of existing electronic components. Under the proposed Phase I effort, PSI will establish the feasibility of the proposed approach through analytical modeling and laboratory breadboard validation. The Phase I will also produce a concept of operations and conceptual design for a TRL 5 prototype solution to be developed in Phase II. Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-8047 (14 Nov 14)
