“It’s nearly impossible to counterfeit and is a fail-safe way of determining whether or not you have an authentic microcircuit…if it doesn’t have that mark, it’s not one of ours.”

Mark Harnitchek, Vice Admiral, USN (Ret)

“I often got asked, Admiral what keeps you awake at night? The answer was pretty simple. Aircraft fasteners. The nuts and bolts that held components onto airplanes. Such as wingbolts. Now there were no wings that fell off during my tenure fortunately. But there were numerous aircraft groundings as a result of faulty bolts, poorly manufactured bolts and in some cases counterfeit bolts.

Given that there are over 4 million repair parts in the 100 billion dollar inventory in the defense supply chain, and inspecting everything to the 100% level was not practical. So a technology solution was needed, and it’s there today.”

Ed Straw, Vice Admiral, USN (Ret)

“You can’t replicate it, the DNA mark can potentially protect the entire logistical chain.”

Leo Plonsky, R&D Program Manager, Defense Logistics Agency J34
