Research Institution
The MDA Director issued a directive necessitating the protection of Critical Program Information (CPI) from unintentional transfer and the policy for the implementation of anti-tamper (AT) technology on MDA acquisition and associated technology programs. AT technology consists of engineering activities that prevent and/or delay exploitation of critical technologies in U.S. weapons systems. The purpose is to add longevity to critical technology by deterring efforts to reverse-engineer, exploit, or develop countermeasures against a system or component. The Very Low Power Capacitive Fabric effort is focused on developing a low power sensor that detects reverse engineering attacks while harvesting energy to power the sensor system. This enhanced power solution provides sufficient power to the sensor system for initiating and accomplishing protective actions. The power solution will be independent, small, light weight, and covert to provide tampering protection and energy harvesting capabilities. Attention has been placed on longevity of power source, cost introduced into weapons platforms, and the associated hardware and software. Development of the Very Low Power Capacitive Fabric system will help the MDA maintain a technological edge in support of the war fighters.
