Abstract

LIT proposes the development of Phantom Sensor technology to prevent exploitation of US Weapons Systems and to protect Critical Program Information by characterizing the configuration of a CCA and for determining if the CCA has been tampered with or altered. Phantom Sensor CCA characterization extends the operational effectiveness of the system and protects system components by verifying appropriate system configuration. LIT Phantom Sensor circuits are implemented in programmable logic and can be incorporated with Zero Component Impact to mission critical systems containing programmable logic devices. This research emphasizes Phantom Sensor circuits in dual-configuration implementations and includes operating temperature research.
