Abstract

This presentation is chronologically-progressive to the author's ISTFA Keynote given in 2010: "Counterfeiters' Techniques: Constantly Improving to Avoid Detection - National Security Depends on Us to Keep Up". It shares, in detail, the forensic test methodologies utilized by SMT and ultimately the research breakthroughs which gave the labs crystal-clear insight into the counterfeiters specific step-by-step rework process. The presentation includes all forensic work utilized in exposing the "Micro-blast" & "Flat-Lap" counterfeit processes identified at SMT labs during 2011, as well as unpublished novel process threats and refinements identified in 2013 & 2014. It also covers the counterfeit mitigation work that SMT supported with the GAO and Senate Armed Services Committee's investigation into counterfeits within DoD supply chains during the 2011-2012 time period.
