Wonder what is the cost per microchip to mark with our ink? Has to be very attractive considering the cost involved to troubleshoot, replace defective chips, restore and reboot systems.Remember some of these military systems are in remote, dangerous locations and in sensitive, dangerous equipment that may require contract enigneers to work on. I would think that investing in our technology could actually save billions of dollars not to even mention all the security issues involved and the expense due to repercussions of failures.
Now consider a political issue. I believe it was the Clinton administration that changed the secured DOD government procurement process to include small and disadvantaged business in the supply chain procurement which enhanced the probability of counterfeit products. Since as our government apparently places a priority on equal opportunity rather than absolute security our patented processes could be not only a physical way to protect the integrity of the supply chain but also a way to insure the political correctness of procurement. Seems to be a no brainer considering all the implications. These are several reasons I am betting heavily on APDN.
