ProteanTecs Ltd. (Haifa, Israel), which combines chip-embedded software agents with machine learning to spot faults or aberrant behavior, is working with BAE Systems on a “zero-trust supply chain” for defense and critical infrastructure applications.

BAE Systems said ProteanTecs’ technology would allow it to track chips and maintain supply chain integrity. Typically proteanTecs’ Universal Chip Telemetry (UCT) has been used for predictive maintenance purposes but in this case BAE Systems to want to apply it to component integrity and as an anti-counterfeiting measure.

The companies did not discuss in details how this would be achieved.

“The counterfeit chip market is sizeable and growing with a worldwide value estimated at $75 billion in 2019. Those counterfeits are believed to have been integrated into more than $169 billion of electronic devices,” said Paul Karazuba, vice president of marketing at Expedera AI Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) in a statement issued by ProteanTecs.

“Recent confirmed incidents of counterfeit parts found in electronic systems include defibrillators, airport landing lights, and braking systems for high speed trains. With electronic devices critical to nearly every aspect of modern life, the risk of counterfeits can range from an inconvenience to injury or loss of life,” Karazuba added.

“By preventing counterfeit leaks, ProteanTecs’ technology can help companies assure secure deployment, protect their reputations, and maintain customer trust in their products,” said Uzi Baruch, chief strategy officer at ProteanTecs, in the same statement.
