Experts say that SigNature DNA marking presents a simple, proactive approach to help protect the military and commercial supply chain. Selected by the Defense Logistics Agency after an eighteen-month pilot program at commercial scale, vetted by national labs and tested at CALCE, the technology is now required by Defense Logistics Agency for parts that fall into category FSC 5962 (microcircuits). The mandate has been linked by DLA to the all-important anti-counterfeiting measures taken in Section 818 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, an industry-changing initiative.

The company promises the webcast will present "the plain facts, without the politics."
