While the aerospace industry has taken on board stringent measures and anti-counterfeit solutions, unapproved parts are still entering the supply chain. The particular difficulty with such a global industry is detecting where exactly these counterfeit aerospace parts enter the supply chain.
Our Q-ID® Optical tags provide security at an atomic level, exploiting the inherent randomness of quantum materials to create a solution which cannot be cloned by counterfeiters. These unique identities (Quantum Signature) can be integrated easily into any existing manufacturing process at a large scale and low cost. Able to be incorporated at both packaging and product level, unique identities can be read by a standard smartphone camera.
This allows the process of authentication to take place in just a few seconds, far quicker than many other counterfeit solutions. All you need to do to authenticate a product is download the Quantum Base app. This uses your smartphone camera to read the Q-ID® tag and provide all relevant product information relating to aerospace parts. This process can be done across the global supply chain, ensuring only approved, genuine aerospace parts and electronics make it into the air, therefore maximising efficiencies, and securing safety and protection.
