A Serious Challenge to our Nation’s Supply Chain

Productive hardware security and software security require that commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) remain uncompromised. We develop and implement revolutionary microelectronics inspection and security assessments that enhance the safety of the nation’s military, as well as civilian critical assets.

Through cyber-physical analysis and data analytics that incorporate AI/ML algorithms, we deliver effective, adaptable, and practical detection and monitoring solutions that quickly find threats, mitigate them and stop others from breaching your architecture.
