Air Force Supply Chain Challenge Finalist – Showcase at ITC2019 expo

Home|Air Force Supply Chain Challenge Finalist – Showcase at ITC2019 expo

ObjectSecurity was selected as a Finalist for its Supply Chain Risk Analysis Management System (SCRAMS) at the “Supply Chain and Provenance Challenge” run by Air Force Research Labs (AFRL) in partnership with AFWERX (idea 4531, viewing requires registration here). The Challenge seeks solutions to solve a problem that exists today around provenance of microelectronics and Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) solutions that the USAF would like to utilize on Air Force Bases and in operational environments.

AFWERX is looking for non-destructive methods, techniques, and tools to trace the parts of any COTS assembly (hardware and software) to prove provenance and suitability for use in military applications in a cost-effective manner. That includes the method of assembly, the source of boards, components, packaging, microchips, intellectual property blocks (or custom designs), process technology, the foundry of origin, raw materials.

After being selected as semi-finalist out of 85 submissions, ObjectSecurity presented their supply chain provenance ideas to an expert team from AFWERX/AFRL on May 30, 2019, and – together with teaming partner Riverside Research – was selected as one of three finalist teams.

ObjectSecurity is part of one of three teams that has been contracted by AFWERX/Defensewerx to develop a showcase prototype and will showcase its joint solution with partner Riverside Research at the AFWERX booth at the International Test Conference, Washington D.C., 12-14 November 2019.
