Public Profile

Space Photonics, Inc. is involved in the development of optical networking systems and components for military and commercial aircraft and spacecraft. It offers fault tolerant fiber optic network products, such as space qualified fiber optic transceivers, VHDL cores, development boards, development and verification systems, and gateway cores; RAD-hard optical transceivers; and free space optical communications transceivers. The company also provides various services to include training and design support, hybrid packaging and prototyping, custom communication design, communication system training, current in-house testing, future in-house testing, and partnership testing. Important areas of specialty organzie around Anti-Tamper technologies to include Systems to Combat Reverse Engineering; ACIID (Automatic Control for Intelligent Intrusion Detection); Out-Of-Band embedded AT Sensor Monitoring. The firm provides non-imprinting key storage; Protects key and system memory withthe potential for no human key interaction. FPGA Emanation Reduction Technique: Reduces EM eavesdropping.Protects FPGA cores. Managed FPGA: Stacked PCB reconfigurable FPGA system; On-the-fly partial reconfiguration; Bitstream decryption; Protected Configuration pins, JTAG Honeypot ready. SCATTR (Source Code Anti-Tamper Technique Renderer): Source Code Obfuscator making code disassembly more difficult for adversary; Anti-Debugging and Code Flattening. XADUR (X-ray Assisted Design Understanding and Recovery) Verifies foundry changes to IC. Compares Design with X-ray scan. Design files guide the image processing algorithm. Analyze for malicious intent. Materials to Combat Reverse Engineering XBS (X-Ray Blocking and Scattering) Nanocomposite - developed specifically in an effort to conceal critical components from adversaries. XBS has been proven effective in obfuscation of critical technology components against X-Ray and Terahertz Microscopy imaging attempts. Nano-Mesh Ionizing Environment and Physical Intrusion Sensors. Sensor produces a measurable DC voltage when in the presence of ionizing radiation. Very thin structure (50 to 200 nm) is sensitive to violations by physical probing attempts. Deposition and fabrication processes may be utilized at the die or wafer-level - directly and non-intrusively integrated onto the surface of an IC or wafer of interest. Can be monolithically integrated with other AT sensors onto a single substrate for application at the package level. Nano-Lock Sensor Arrays These nanomaterials based elemental arrays utilize the inherent randomness of nanomaterials and deposition techniques to ensure each manufacutured array is truely unique and imposible to reproduce exatly, even if the method of manufacture is known. Unique Key for Circuit Locking Intrusion Detection Random Number Generation Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) Applications
